Flame Oversized body causes fire at crematory

The cremation of an oversized body apparently helped set ablaze the roof of a crematory Wednesday when the  smokestack overheated and set roofing material on fire.

I was afraid they'd put a wick in my navel and make me an eternal flame.

That reminds me of the time ,when I was still a student with the fire deparment, when the call came in for a flue fire at the mortuary just down the street from our station. I'd never been happier to be on a medical call and heard another crew had to respond.

I'll bet after that, the responding crew really needed a stiff one!

On flue fires, the low man on the totem pole (would of been me) got to climb up and look down into the chimney for any burning material stuck to the walls or for holes in the pipe that could mean fire extension into the attic.
