    OK Couch, time to fess up - and put your hands where we can see them.

    Evidently there's been a little problem in the Seattle area where people are being advised to not leave out combustible materials. Seems there's a few arson incidences starting off with a flaming couch. This has all the ear marks of a couch_incident.

    You been on any road trips lately?, and what is that scorch mark on your left hand ...

    And how much did you pay off Bug Boy to not report this to Foo?

    A third fire since Saturday has occurred in the University District, and authorities say all three were arson.

    Seattle Fire Department spokeswoman Dana Vander Houwen said that about 8:30 p.m. Monday, a discarded couch propped against a fence and a stairway behind a house in the 5200 block of Brooklyn Avenue was set on fire, causing $1,000 damage to the fence and stairs.

    About 8 p.m. Saturday, a couch and the contents of two Dumpsters were set on fire behind an apartment building in the 5500 block of 15th Avenue Northeast. The burning items partially blocked the exit to an occupied apartment building. Flames reached the top of the multistory building and did $5,000 damage to the siding, according to Seattle Police and the fire department.

    Police said there were no smoke alarms in the building, and the fire represented a significant risk to the occupants.

    Eight minutes after that fire was reported, a second fire was reported in the 5600 block of University Way Northeast, where a discarded mattress was set on fire.

    Vander Houwen said the first two fires are believed to be connected, but investigators haven't decided whether the third fire is linked to the others.

    The fire department asks that combustible material not be left out near buildings and that anyone with information about the arsons call 1-800-555-ARSON.

    I think it was a couple getting too wild on the front porch, and the friction set the couch on fire

    No, but I have thrown a (not empty) cigarette lighter into the fire. It makes a very pretty fireball! (and less shrapnel than a paint can)

    Last night my friend's neighbor's house went boom.

    Every passing minute is another chance to turn it all around.
