The Housefire

A while back, we at the Wonton Way decided to perform a groundbreaking and critically important scientific experiment. We decided to melt a Peep, using only a decades-old alcohol stove purchased for $5 at a yardsale. Seeing as how it was cold outside, we decided to perform this experiment in our basement shop so as to avoid the terrible inconvienence of putting on jackets and venturing out of our house. However, after lighting the stove, it was clear that something was wrong; 3 foot flames were shooting out of the burners, licking at the ceiling above. After valiant attempts to blow out the fire birthdaycake-style, we went with our first instinct; we grabbed a video camera. Luckily for the ceiling of our shop, our second instinct was to grab a fire extinguisher. Now, here is the video of Wontonway's housefire for your viewing pleasure (note the highpressure propane blowtorch in the foreground):
