This is a couch burning. I do not entirely agree with doing this, but I did have a good time over all that night. I'm not sure if you've ever seen a couch burning but I would advise getting back away from it at least 40-50 feet. It goes up real quick and is toxic. I would say by at the time this picture (the one thats engulfed)was taken when it was burning for maybe a minute.
This got me thinking. In fact a lot of things in your home or apartment burn really well. Like carpet, mattresses, curtains and of course anything wood(Which is almost everything we make or build is made out of). It's not a relief to me that most things in our homes burn so easily. We need to come up with a better material that doesn't burn that fast in our homes. The regulations are not good enough? I'm sure you know all this, but it's a good reminder to be careful if you smoke ciggarettes or when your cooking. It's just one more thing that is going through my mind that I'm concerned about.
