This is a question Have you ever started a fire?

I went to sleep with candles burning - woke up to a circle of flame on the rug. Thought, "Tits. Better put the rug in the bath and turn the taps on." TIP: Don't put a burning rug into a fibre glass bath. I caused about £5000 of damage to the house and was coughing up smoky black phlegm for a few weeks. Can you beat that?

Used to start them as kids on the support stanchion of a suspension bridge in cork
we'd collect up flammable rubbish and set it alight (not enough material to damage the bridge though - it'd have to have somehow climbed 30 feet of concrete-clad stone to reach the wood anyway).

the game was to then try to get past the fire on the foot wide path around the base of the stanchion, without getting burned or falling into the river.

None of us died, so it can't have been that stupid - if you caught fire, you could fall in the river, and if you couldn't swim, the fire would jump in and save you. Yup.
