I’ll keep putting my potato peels down the disposal thank you
A fire destroyed a home at 15 East Rounds Ave. Saturday morning after a compost pile spontaneously combusted.
The compost pile was located next to a deck that was attached to the house.
“Once that organic material reaches a certain temperature, it ignites,” said Franklin County Fire Investigator John Bashaw. “Something like that needs to be kept away from a house.”
No one was injured in the blaze.
