Sun Shining On Nutella Jar Allegedly Causes House Fire That Kills Dog
Chocolate is dangerous to more than just your diet.
A Twickenham, England family will have to find somewhere else to live for a full year after a glass Nutella jar sparked a fire that burned down much of their house and killed their dog, Chili.
Get West London reports 41-year-old Declan Murphy and his wife, Lindsay, left home this past Sunday afternoon to celebrate their anniversary, and brought along their young daughter and son.
While they were out, however, an empty jar being used as loom band storage was left in the sun that was pouring in their daughter's bedroom. The glass reportedly refracted the sunbeams, sparking a fire in her blinds.
As smoke and flames spread through the house, the Murphy family's 9-year-old Jack Russell was unable to escape. Heartbreakingly, he died of smoke inhalation.
