Bubble Bath? 
1998 Personal Account

Submitted by BrushBoy

An alert firefighter relates the following tale:

The call came in at 2PM. A structure fire in Palmer MA. As we approached the scene, our dispatcher notified us that the house trailer was fully involved. At the scene, we found smoke and flames coming out of the windows and doors. The fire was extinguished in an hour and an investigation begun.

It didn't take long to complete, since the owner already knew the cause of the blaze. He said the gunpowder he lit in the bathtub ignited some nearby clothes. We asked him why in the world he would ignite gun powder in the bathtub. He explained that he was simply trying to smoke out a family of skunks that took residence under his house trailer.
