So I woke up about 45 min ago to the smell of smoke in my room. Couldn't figure out what it was, so I go outside my room and my apartment was filled with smoke I mean filled to the point you can's see 5 feet. My first concern was my pets! I proceed down my hallway and downstairs to the living room and kitchen. I see flames reflecting off the walls and counter, flames at least 3ft high. Now logic would say get the hell out of there which is probably what I should have done but did not. First I grabbed a towl and tried to smother the fire which worked a little bit but was taking far too long as there was a lot of flames. So I grab an empty milk jug and fill it up and start flailing water all over my kitchen. After a min or two I got all the flames out. So now I'm stuck with an apt full of smoke so I go air it out, once it airs out a bit I go to my stove and 2 burners are on high and my front door is unlocked. The weird thing is I haven't used my stove in like 2 weeks! And my door was unlocked and I almost never forget to lock the dead bolt. So did one of my cats slip and somehow turn them on or is someone out to get me? Now I got a huge freakin mess to clean up so guess I'm not going fishing.
