Giant Knickers Douse Fire


A large pair of ladies underwear were used to put out a fire in London recently.
A British woman's bloomers doubled as a fire blanket when her kitchen caught fire.

John Marsey and Darren Lines were frying bread in Hartlepool, England, when the oil caught fire. Lines grabbed his aunt's billowing, powder blue, size XL underpants from a nearby hamper, ran them under the faucet, and proceeded to smother the fire.

An official from the Cleveland Fire Brigade said using a large, wet cloth to cover a grease fire was effective.
As for using underwear: "Clearly it depends on what size you are -- but I don't want to go there."
