Boys Set Cockroaches on Fire, Burn Down Grandparents' House
Monday, September 10, 2007

POMPANO BEACH, Fla. â€" Two boys setting cockroaches on fire for fun burned down their grandparents' Pompano Beach home. No one was hurt in the blaze.

City spokeswoman Sandra King said the boys, 8 and 10 years old, were having a sleepover at their grandparents' home when they decided to use rubbing alcohol and a lighter to set cockroaches they saw in their room on fire.

The boys woke up their grandparents after a bed caught on fire and the blaze spread throughout the house.

The Red Cross temporarily placed the family at a hotel.

The boys were to attend the Broward Sheriff's Office Fire-Starter prevention and education program.

I raised 2 daughters but until my 2 grandsons (2 1/2 & 4 month) olds came along I thought I could teach them some of the stuff I did for fun when I was growing up, the problem is it wasn't illegal when I was a kid, but I never thought of setting cockroaches on fire. I did manage to burn my parents garage down but that's another story.......
