Do you remember why your parents asked you not to play with matches? Oh yes, because it could burn down the house. Well, it seems like matches aren’t the only thing that could burn the house. 

Sometimes, it’s the most innocent-looking thing that can create a lot of mess. Most of the time, we don’t even realize that these things could cause so much destruction. You can scroll down to have a look.

#9 Boy Accidentally Sets Lawn On Fire With Magnifying Glass He Got As Christmas Present

Christmas Day was memorable, to say the least! My twelve-year-old son Cayden, who is an avid reader, an honor student, and interested in science, asked for a magnifying glass for Christmas. (It’s like a basketball player asking for basketball shoes.) We thought it was for reading, but instead, he tried to see if he could light a fire with it! We discovered that he and his two brothers went out on the driveway to see if they could burn a couple of holes in some newspaper. Everything was under control until the boys came running into the house telling us that a corner of the lawn was on fire and the Christmas lights were melting! Justin and I rushed outside to see the entire front lawn turning black! We grabbed buckets, turned on the hose and sprinklers, and I grabbed blankets to smother and trap it – before it could spread any more into the neighbor’s yard! What a sight to see – a bunch of people running around crazy trying to put a front lawn fire out while wearing matching Christmas jammies!
I want to reiterate this was an accident. It could have been worse but it wasn’t. So instead of a tragedy, it will now be a Christmas to remember! 2019- The Christmas lawn lit on fire.
Oh and never buy a magnifying glass for your son!
