Insult to Injury

A good rule of thumb when pulling weeds from your garden is to remove the root. Oh, and don’t burn your house down.

One Springfield, Ohio man missed that last part when police say he took a blowtorch to weeds on his property, inadvertently setting fire to a nearby garage and destroying all its contents in the process.

No one was injured in the blaze, estimated to have caused $15,000 in damages.
