Threaten. We had to evacuate, but the fire ended up not really getting close to our house.

Short in the attic. Gutted the whole second floor. Then my grandpa and my uncles restored the house and me and brother got new bedrooms and a play room.

When I was a kid. Me, my brother and my mom were eating lunch at the dinning room table and heard noises from upstairs. My mom asked me, being the oldest, to check it out. I climbed the stair case and when I got to the landing I saw the whole second floor in flames. It was started by an electrical

Wow the independent poll! Maybe because many of them might be older?

My mom accidentally set our house on fire twice when I was a kid. Once, grease on the stove that she forgot about and once by leaving beehives (of all things) on top of the wood stove, then starting a fire. Whew! What childhood memories!

You could say it's been threatened a few times. Car on fire in the driveway (faulty wiring on a new part), fish on fire in the oven, popcorn on fire on the stove, yeah… Glad we have fire extinguishers. Without those it would have been bye-bye to the house(s). Not to mention plenty of false alarms…
