Man melting snow with blowtorch ignites home

A man in NEW BEDFORD, Mass was trying to melt the ice on his porch but ended up burning down his house. He got too close to the building’s wood frame and ignited the vinyl siding. The fire quickly spread into the building’s second- and third-floor apartments.

It caused $30,000 in damage.
