You know, breakups can be hard. Sometimes we would rather just forget and move on. A woman from Nebraska didn't quite think that way and in an attempt to burn her exes love letters, she ended up setting her apartment on fire instead. Yikes! The Lincoln Fire Department posted about the incident on its Facebook page, Apparently, she had trouble actually igniting them, so she reportedly left the romantic messages “smoldering” on her carpet while she took a nap. Yeah, that's not the smartest move. I'm going to guess that the reason for why the boyfriend broke up with her was because she was careless.
According to the Facebook post, “On September 16th, shortly after 4:30 p.m., LPD and LFR responded to a fire at an apartment complex near 46th and Meredeth Street. LFR extinguished a fire on the third floor of the apartment that caused approximately $4,000 in damage. Officers discovered a 19-year-old woman lit letters from her ex on fire and left them on the carpet before taking a nap.” The post continues to reveal that the woman, “reported they weren't starting on fire like she thought they would so she set them on the carpet and went to take a nap. She woke a short time later to the smoke detector sounding. The woman was cited for negligent burning.”
The fire burned the apartment’s balcony and caused approximately $4,000 in damage,Yahoo Lifestyle reports. I'm assuming her ex is probably laughing to himself when he heard about this.
