I have no method how I have such poor 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 a single night.
My parents were in the other room, so they did not even think that I did it.
I didn’t mention it to them because I thought that I was doing something sweet. I had all superb intentions, however what I didn’t realize was that I didn’t close the door all of the way, plus 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 hubby plus I purchased a home with a wood stove years ago. I really prefer the smell of a wood burning stove. It reminds myself and others of house because I grew up having a wood stove, however somehow, I managed to catch my home on fire with our wood stove as well. I have no method 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 ecstatic that the people I was with and I were able to get out of the house; Every one of us were able to save the house, however my wood stove was disfigured quite a bit. I refuse to use a wood stove now. I am too afraid of them, plus I guess that I have superb reason to be afraid of them.
