Fundraiser for my Cousin's house. #5924
My cousin's house burned to the ground today. He was thawing a frozen water line and went inside to ask his wife to try the water, when he went back a fire had started and the extinguisher he had wasn't enough to put it out.
He and his wife watched their house burn down before their eyes. Nobody was hurt though, their kids were in school.

His sister-in-law created this gofundme so I'm just spreading the word.

Jeez, that's tragic. Please excuse my ignorance (I live in the tropics, so don't know); how do you go about thawing a water pipe for that to happen?

I'm putting something towards the fundraiser myself, very shortly. Glad everyone was uninjured.

@Naro thank you!

@Cygon, thank you as well. Usually frozen pipes are thawed using a tiger torch. I have no idea if that's what he was using but it's likely he was using some type of open flame. With such cold dense air fires are practically unstoppable ones hot.
