TIFU by burning my house down.(r/tifu)
I hope a lot of people read this post and are inspired to go buy a fire extinguisher
Keep a fire extinguisher ready at hand and know how to use it. Remember the P.A.S.S. method.
Pull the pin
Aim at the base of the flames
Squeeze the trigger
Sweep side to side
OP meant to have one but forgot. Don’t think you won’t need one. Same thing with the streamer who burned his house down. You can’t just expect to throw some water on growing flames and everything will be ok. Don’t take chances with your life its much easier to just have a fire extinguisher
edit: couple people mentioning price and delivery problems. Consider visiting your local fire department most areas have programs to help people or likely they will just give you one.
