Water catches fire !!!!

Now to bring this in the realm of cycling :O) All of us drink a LOT of water . I use a pure triple filter here in Michigan .But if you live in Fort Lupton CO you might want to rethink your tap water !!! According to Comcast front page your TAP WATER has caught on fireIam so thankful I live near the Great Lakes . That rocky mountain spring water brewed beer anway there concerned about it exploding according to the article the water not the beer .... A new dimension to the meaning HOT WATER .
