A perfect example of why it is so important to clean out the junk in your home happened recently right here in Seattle. Firefighters responded to an alarm from a 91-year-old woman who had lit a fire in her fireplace when the sparks leaped out and kicked up a fire. The problem was that there was so much debris in the house, the firefighters not only had to contend with the blaze but also moving through stacks of boxes, newspapers and appliances. We’re talking about waist deep clutter and it was a huge problem.
“They’re going in, they’re searching for people, and they’ve got stuff piled up on the second floor up to their waist-level,” Fire chief Moore told a local newspaper. “You’re crawling over things and you can’t really see what they are when you’re trying to search around to see if there’s any type of person in there.”
Luckily, the woman and her son pulled out and taken to local hospital for treatment of minor injuries. The firefighters had to begin the hard work of yanking out all of that junk to make sure there were no hidden embers waiting to flare up.
“It adds a huge challenge to the firefighters,” Moore said. “There could be fire burning under this debris and you just don’t know it.”
