Here’s the second installment of my five part story on squirrels. Watch out Lisa Ling, I’m coming to getcha!
The cbs13.com reports that Redding firefighters are blaming a flaming squirrel for a grass fire that briefly threatened a home.
Firefighters say the squirrel set off the blaze yesterday when it shorted out a power line, caught fire and dropped into dry vegetation. It took eighteen firefighters and six fire engines 20 minutes to battle the one squirrel blaze.
One squirrel blaze! Badda bing! And the squirrel stock photo they used…very rich. If I didn’t know better I would suggest that cbs13.com is making with the jokes.
UPDATE: News10.net hasn’t thrown their fun hat into the ring with a, er, nutty squirrel photo.
