Your Los Angeles Fire Department has talked frequently of the dangers associated with household cleaning supplies and home improvement chemicals. And the danger isn't limited to humans...
While filming the premiere episode of Pet Sense, Yogi the "cleaning-supply-hating" Corgi bit into a spray can, which led to an explosive kitchen fire captured on video:
We're pleased to say the 8 year-old pet, humans and Los Angeles household survived the interaction between flammable paint fumes and a kitchen ignition source. Yogi's owner Hali Hudson explains more in a thought-provoking interview video that followed the fire:
Yes, commom supplies kept in your cabinets can easily poison a member of your household or ignite an inferno. A scouring pet or child - or the light shaking of an earthquake, may be all it takes to cause a spill or mixture that creates a witches' brew right under your kitchen sink.
We encourage you to read the full story, and then get busy on hazard abatement in your home, before a two- or four-legged member of your household causes what you may have once thought impossible.
