Jar Causes a House Fire... IMG_4473JPG

A family's house was gutted and their beloved dog killed when a Nutella jar magnified the sun's rays, sparking a huge blaze.

Declan Murphy has warned others to be alert to the danger following the devastating inferno at his home in Fielding Avenue, Twickenham, on Sunday afternoon (February 15).

The fire is believed to have been been ignited when the low winter sunlight was focused through the chocolate spread container on his daughter's bedroom window sill, used to hold her loom bands.

Mr Murphy was out at the time, celebrating the anniversary of his engagement, with his wife and two children, aged seven and three. But their dog, a nine-year-old Jack Russell called Chili, was trapped inside and died of smoke inhalation.

"We're all heartbroken at Chili's death and we've been told it will be up to a year before the house is ready for us to move back into," said the 41-year-old electrical supervisor.

diffused things are one thing, but clear materials like glass seem to do that trick. Sad story just the same. Sad

Something similar happened in London, not long ago, the sun reflected on a mirror and set fire to the whole house. Luckily they were all out when it happened.
