If you like setting things on fire, then I like standing there with a hose. (Yes, my wife says I am extremely paranoid when it comes to fires.)
Great word! I guess we've all got a little bit of a pyro in us:)
Hi Patsy - that's the word I used for Eastbourne pier going up in smoke a few years ago ... it certainly conflated! Still hasn't been reinstated ... but is as repaired as it can be ... but things might happen while I'm away - cheers Hilary
In 1951 I had the pleasure(?) of witnessing and helping to fight a conflagration. Near Hickam Air Force Base on Oahu, Hawaii, old civilian barrack-type housing went up in flames. Five or six of my buddies saw the smoke and we hurried to see what was burning. There were a couple of fire trucks unrolling the hoses and we joined in with willing and helping hands. The old two-story wooden buildings were too dry and there wasn't much saved. We never found out how it started, but it was an exciting day in paradise..
It’s a great word and Intend to use it all the time now!
