So, surely as a kid you have either participated in or been a recipient of a home TP'ing. For those of you who are thinking "What?!?", TP'ing is an act which a group of people(typically juveniles) get together in the middle of the night and throw rolls of toliet paper over homes and in/over trees of a friend....or non-friend, unbenounced to those living in the home. Ok, now that the explanation is out of the way, on to the story.
Whatever you do....If you have been the target of a TP'ing, DO NOT set the toliet paper on FIRE!! We repeat, DO NOT set the toliet paper on fire. Unfortunately for a family living in Dora, Alabama they didn't receive this message in time.
The Crausewell family of Dora, Alabama were TP'ed on Sunday night. So, of course on Monday morning, Cheryl(the mother) and her son got outside and started to clean up the mess. They were successful in getting most of it, but were having trouble getting some of the TP out of their tree. They then SET THE TP ON FIRE, it didn't turn out so well for them. The fire spread around the yard, to the gas grill's propane tank, and ultimately catching their HOME on fire. Their family home burnt to the ground.
Thankfully for the Crausewell's, the family was unharmed and they have homeowner's insurance, so everything will be ok in the grand scheme of things. Moral of the story: DON'T SET TP IN YOUR TREES ON FIRE!
