Man Burns Down House Trying To Propose To His Girlfriend With Hundreds Of Lit Candles

Romance and stupid don't mix well!

One man's desire to be romantic has proved quite expensive, and dangerous, as it turns out he was left with a house burned to the ground. As reporter by Legit, the man had lit hundreds of candles in his house and was ready to be all cheesy and romantic with his girlfriend when the house caught on fire and burned down. Fortunately, however, no one was hurt and the fire was brought under control soon.

The fire department, however, did not let this chance slip by to be funny and their tweets about the incident were more lit than the house. They tweeted: "THREAD: Look closely. What do you see? That's right, hundreds of tea light candles!  Want to know what happened here? We thought you did. It involves a romantic proposal that didn't quite go to plan, and includes an important lesson around candle use. Let's Go!"

 



 

They revealed the story: "So here's the deal... Last night three crews were mobilised to a flat fire in Sheffield. They dealt with it quickly, as ever, before trying to establish what caused it. So, a quick chat with the occupant revealed that this room had been filled with 100s of tea lights."

 



 

They added: "It had also been filled with balloons (yep, that's what you can see in this photo) and, as you'd expect, a nice bottle of wine... This was going to be the scene of a romantic proposal and the occupant, a chap who we shall not name, had really gone to town! "

 



 

And then some more: "With the scene set, he went round the corner to pick his girlfriend up, ready for the big moment. As they returned, though, their flat was on fire. The culprit? Yep, you guessed it, the tea lights... (Look closely and you'll see them)"

 



 

The end of the story, however, was not as horrible as the story itself as the lady who was supposed to be wooed, said 'YES!' All's well that ends well, right?
