Live Streamer Sets House On Fire

What did you get up to this long weekend? It probable can’t compete with one Japanese man who tried to light a cigarette and ended up burning down part of a house. The worst bit is his casual efforts to put it out.

Skip to 4:50 for the start of the fire shenanigans.

The real question is, why does he have so much paper and cardboard around?

The robotic sounding voice (according to the Reddit comments) is commentators (via text to speech) on the live stream telling him useful things like to call the fire brigade, use a fire extinguisher, or even just to look behind where the fire is spready.

Reddit sleuths also suggest that the reason why his box of matches goes up in flames is that it’s a metal match lighter that had leaked fuel.

The sad side is that apparently 30% of the house burnt down and four people suffered injuries, but all survived.

So, what is the biggest mistake you made over the long weekend?
