I have no system how I have such bad luck when it comes to wood stoves! When I was a little girl, I tried helping my parents out by adding wood to our wood stove 1 night. My parents were in the other room, so they did not even guess that I did it. I didn’t mention it to them because I thought that I was doing something sweet. I had all great intentions, however what I didn’t realize was that I didn’t close the door all of the way, and a piece of wood fell out. It was on fire, so it caught the rug on the floor on fire, thankfully, my dad found the fire before it got too big. I had nightmares about that for years. My spouse and I bought a condo with a wood stove years ago. I easily love the smell of a wood burning stove. It reminds me of home because I grew up having a wood stove, somehow, I managed to catch my condo on fire with our wood stove as well. I have no system how I did it this time. I just woke up in the middle of the night to a fire. It was the scariest thing that I have ever experienced. I am so happy that both of us were able to get out of the house, but all of us were able to save the house, however my wood stove was mangled quite a bit. I refuse to use a wood stove now. I am too afraid of them, and I suppose that I have great reason to be afraid of them.
