Man Sets Neighborhood On Fire When Blow-Torching Weeds

Perhaps a string trimmer, machete, or even just pulling them up by hand would have been a smarter solution for clearing weeds off an Ohio man's property. Unfortunately, he chose to go big.

According to Newburgh Heights Mayor Trevor Elkins, the man instead used a blowtorch, which managed to cause his truck to catch fire.

The explosion and ensuing blaze then spread, burning several of the homes the man owned.

Thankfully no one was hurt in Monday afternoon's incident, and the state's Fire Marshall is investigating.
