I never realized how dangerous fireplaces can be at times. My spouse, Todd, plus I have always had a fireplace in our home. Since we’ve been married, both of us have owned three weird homes together, plus all three have had fireplaces. I have always enjoyed them, plus so has Todd. Every one of us don’t have any children of our own, so both of us never entirely have to worry about them trying to play with the fireplace or anything adore that… For this reason, it never crossed my mind when both of us had some friends over to our house a couple weeks ago. Our friends Molly plus Kurt came over for brunch, plus they brought their 2 little kids with them. Every one of us had a entirely pleasant time. The food turned out great, plus both of us entirely enjoyed spending time with them. Their youngest daughter is only three years old, plus she is at the stage where she enjoys to get into everything. While both of us adults were talking, Katie, their youngest daughter, decided she wanted to play with the fire in the fireplace. She grabbed a small stick from our firewood pile plus put it in the fire. It lit up plus she took it out plus caught my rug in front of the fireplace on fire! This all happened in less than 2 minutes, so it took us all by surprise; All multiples of us ran over to the fireplace to make sure Katie was alright plus to put out the fire. Thankfully, Katie was undamaged plus nothing else caught on fire. I simply had to replace my small rug, however that was no sizable deal. In the end, both of us have l gained to be much more cautious with our fireplace. Every one of us gated it off, so hopefully, nothing adore that will ever happen again.
