Hot Dog

Firefighters responded to a structure fire in Lacey Township, N.J., and found no one home, but rescued a dog that was inside. They entered the home and put out the fire, and investigators determined the cause. The dog, they say, somehow turned on the stove. Sitting on the stove was a laptop computer, and the hot burner set the laptop on fire, which then spread to the structure itself. (RC/Asbury Park Press) ...Which sure as heck beats the old “the dog ate my homework” excuse.
