Apropos to nothing locally, there was this brilliant football fan story by Matt Zapotsky in the Washington Post this morning. After tailgating at the Monday Night Football game at FedEx field, a fan placed hot charcoal from their grill into the trunk of their car before heading inside to the game. The resulting inferno took out a total of ten cars and took the fire department 25 minutes to bring under control.
“…one person whose sport-utility vehicle was burned said she suspects it was a Steelers fan”
The spokesperson for the fire department offered up these words of wisdom “The lesson learned is don’t put hot coals in the trunk of your car.”
