This article is useless without identifying the brand of Vodka.

This happened at a local deli, only the clear, spherical coffee pots were the culprit.

Oddly, the town used to be called Daterapeburg until they changed it at the start of the twentieth century. Seems they didn't want to tempt fate.

Burnsville fire officials say they've never heard of so-called firewater could become a fire starter

I've heard alcohol could become make you drunk.

That's a lie. The DHMO they cut the alcohol with is the poison effecting your mind.

From the video it looks like it was Karkov, which is arguably better suited for use as an accelerant than as a beverage anyway.

I am assuming that the vodka itself didn't ignite, but rather sunlight shining through the bottles ignited a cardboard display.

That's why I only drink dark liquor, from square, or rectangular bottles.

It's usually safe so long as you keep it separated so you have less than 40 pounds together at a time.

Sam Adams six-pack cartons are so high up so they don't accidentally start fires.

IMHO the DHMO be's am commonist plot, irregardlessly of what you may have heard in the mainstreamliberalpress re: vodak.

/CH3CH2OH is hydratropic, and is damn' near impossible to make 100% pure without special equipment.

Oh isn't that a cute play on words. Too bad Spain /= Mexico.
Idiot.

This happened to me. My brother had some small round fishbowls with a beta fish inside each one as part of the centerpieces at his wedding reception. At the end of the night I took them all home so that the fish didn't get thrown out. I put them on my kitchen counter and went to sleep. The next morning the sunlight came in through my kitchen window, went through the fishbowls and was focused on a pile of junk mail and bills. After a few minutes, kapoof. I woke up smelling smoke but figured my neighbors were just burning something. It wasn't until I could see the smoke in the air did I check downstairs....

And for those wondering, the fish were fine.

The high school mascot used to be the Braves. It was deemed offensive and they changed it to the Blaze. That year someone torched the high school.

Because it's cheap crap.

one of hottest sellers on the floor got a little too toasty when the store was closed last Sunday.

Sunday booze sales MUST be allowed in Minnesota to keep this tragedy from happening again.

Do you have any facts, or is that just, like, your opinion, man?

Hey, my neighborhood liquor store makes Fark. Clearly, I need to buy more of their vodka to prevent another such tragedy.
