Can't he just be shoved into said storage unit that's full of snakes on fire?

I used to work for a very small carpet cleaning company during college and we used a storage garage to keep the van and supplies in. During the winter we would run a small space heater in the van plugged into the light in the garage so the pipes wouldn't freeze. Every single day I showed up for work I expected to see police and firetrucks.

What a dumb-ass.

It's been a while since I've been inside a self-storage unit. Is it normal for them to have electrical power available to their renters? Also, I thought they were all made of cinder blocks and metal framing. Why so much fire damage?

I hope this particular renter had liability insurance. I'm guessing that while some of the destroyed units had junk people weren't quite ready to sell, others had valuable property inside. Financial records, if nothing else.

Flaming snakes? That's about $200 right there.

Ya know, I might actually watch that episode. Of course, that would involve them doing a real show instead of two passes, the real auction and the camera session.

It depends. Since he was using an extension cord to power the lamp, I'm going to guess he had to run it under the door to get to a power outlet outside the actual unit. You can rent climate controlled units with outlets inside them in some areas, but they're expensive.

It probably has a light inside. Said light socket can be turned into a plug for an extension cord.

As far as the fire? If there is a bunch of 'stuff'' in it besides the snakes, that will burn. Fire bleeds over into the next unit (they are not walled off that much), and poof....bunch of peoples stuff is gone.

Don't really understand the whole thing about keeping snakes as pets. I think they're kinda creepy to have hanging around a house (kinda like their keepers). Much better they be outside doing their snake thing.
But the dude that ruined a whole bunch of peoples stuff so he could keep his snakes warm! That douche better hope the other renters don't find out who he is.

it's not unusual in storage rental to have one socket. if they are of the old school variety they are of the sort that handles a very low current load so your tenants don't run power tools, heaters etcetera. watch as owner gets screwed by insurance company not paying off. someone running an extension cord like that in a professional storage unit, the owner/workers would have to be blind not to notice.

I would make the case that snakes on fire is *better* than snakes NOT on fire.

I drove by that fire on my way home from a gig. It was massive. They had two ladder trucks, departments from all over the city, even some from Portsmouth as this place was right on the city line. Two firefighters were hurt and hospitalized and a bunch of people lost their posessions because of this guy warming his snakes.
