Crime Watch Wednesday: Where There's Fire, There's a Toothbrush?

This week's crime chronicles brings us the harrowing story of officers successfully putting out a fire started in our neighborhood:

Officers responded to a fire inside a home. They discovered it was a burning electric toothbrush in a second floor bathroom. An officer unplugged it and extinguished the fire. The officers had to gain entry to the fire source using fire axes.

Um, okay. There is a fire. It is a fire from an electric toothbrush. One officer is able to unplug it and extinguish the fire, yet somehow they all had to use axes and chop the place up to get in there? Could they not have, I don't know? TURNED THE DOOR HANDLE? I bet the door wasn't even shut. I bet they were chopping through a plaster wall outside the bathroom when an officer said "hey guys, look I found the source. It is the toothbrush right over here WHERE THE FIRE IS."

Our tax dollars at work here, folks.

That would have been far too boring and sensible!

LOL. But knowing where you live, I believe this. I doubt they have much going on. On second thought, maybe they exaggerate in the newspaper??

Joanna - welcome and thanks for stopping by here. I have NO clue what they were thinking or IF they were thinking.

Andhari - SO dramatic. Maybe they were filming a reality TV show?

J - welcome and yes, lovely says it all!

fingers - where the heck have you been hiding? Zora is taking over your blog. And I have missed your zinger comments! Doesn't Listerine have alcohol in it?

Debbie - you are right! And then I would no longer enjoy reading about our crime ridden hood.
