Occupant spots tea towel on fire....

Recommended Posts

Do  you know the age of the occupant?

Do you know if the occupant was physically mobile enough to move the tea towel and put it in the sink?

Are you aware how much the tea towel was alight?

Material make up of the tea towel - size and smoke involved?

I'm guessing not - but, Hey-Ho, you get to post some stuff on the interweb about it. 

You may be able to pick up a burning tea towel and put it into the sink, but what about, lets say, you used a walking frame, or needed an stick to stop you falling over? 

What if your eyesight was not that good and you noticed your kitchen was filling with smoke?

Lets say you tried to move the tea towel and it fell apart, lets say it had a high nylon content and was now sticking to your hands, lets say you are now reaching for your walking frame but you hands are burnt, lets say the towel is now in 20 flaming bits and your slippers are alight, the tea cosy is now alight, and the kitchen curtains.  The room is filling with smoke, you cannot find your walking frame, or glasses to see.  You don't know where the phone is anymore, you cannot see the door, your trousers are now alight ..

Still you get to post about it on the internet.

I'm surprised the fire service didn't cut roof off their car while they were there.

Tea towel fire? Isn't the recommendation to put it out with a damp pan of boiling chip fat, or am I getting confused.

Now, you're just trying to drum up business for your colleagues.

Equally as assumptive and sardonic,but with the same result. Pious buffoonery in it's finest form
