Snow Globe Fire FRENZY!

The local news has erupted with stories about the Snow Globe of Death!

KPTV: Snow Globe Blamed for Couch Fire   (text and photos)

KGW: Snow Globes Ignite Fire in Milwaukie Home     (short video)

KATU: It Was the City of Portland Snow Globe That Tried To Burn My House Down   (video, with Demonstration!)

In all of these, BILJ is merely identified as "a neighbor."  Neighbor K came over last night to thank him again, since if BILJ hadn't been in the right place at the right time to hear the smoke detector going off, a fire might have ignited and burned for quite a while before anyone noticed.  As it was, most of the damage was caused by the firepersons breaking a door open and dragging the couch outside.  Interesting how things work out, sometimes.
