The Hazards of an Inexperienced Plumber

A California man found out the hard way that emergency plumbing repairs are a task best left to the professionals. After finding several leaking pipes inside one of his walls, the man decided to take matters into his own hands and repair the damage himself, using a blow torch. Though he did manage to fix the leaking pipes temporarily, the heat from the torch ignited insulation inside the wall. The smoldering blaze moved upward inside the walls, eventually setting the attic of the home on fire.

Fortunately, firefighters were able to put out the blaze with only minimal damage to the home and no injuries. However, all the trouble could have been avoided if the home owner had called an experienced plumber to begin with.
