It seemed like a good idea at the time....


Fire started to drive out snakes destroyed barn, other structures : In a quest to rid his yard of snakes, William Litaker unknowingly started a fire
that sent 50 to 75 fire and other emergency crews to his family-owned property at 350 Litaker Road in western Rowan County. The 82-year-old said he’d seen a couple of copperheads behind a mobile home he used as storage. So he thought Thursday was a pretty enough day to “smoke ’em out,” he told a Post reporter. He said he poured kerosene on the ground and lit it. The fire quickly spread to a barn, two sheds and the mobile home. “I thought now would be a good time to do it, but it wasn’t,” he said.

But it was a good time. The fire department wasn't busy so they could come tight over for the afternoon.

The point we are missing is that his mission was successful.

You don’t know where the itch is
until you scratch it with your own hand.
