Heat Of Passion

by | 22nd, July 2004

‘A LOVELORN German teenager burned down his house in an attempt to impress his girlfriend.

An unusual mating ritual perhaps, but all the 18-year-old was trying to do was lay out hundreds of candles in the shape of a heart containing the words, “You set my heart on fire”.

Heart, house – well, it’s almost the same.

The heat from the candles apparently got so intense that the molten wax spread onto the floor where it ignited.

It took firefighters an hour to get the resultant blaze under control, by which time some £33,000 of damage had been done to the property.

‘My girlfriend didn’t even see the message, all I have left of it is a photograph – and she was not in the mood to look at that when she realised what had happened,’ our pyrotechnic Romeo complained.’
