A man in England set the perfect romantic scene to ask his girlfriend to be his wife, unfortunately it wasn't just a proposal fail. It was a full inferno!
A Sheffield man set the romantic scene in his flat on Abbeydale Road. The groom-to-be filled the room with lit tea lights and balloons. Ready for her to be surprised when she arrived home from work. He went to grab her, just down the road, and come back for the surprise.
She didn't get to experience any of it, because it was a full inferno when they got back. Everything in the apartment was a blaze and the fire department had to come put out the flames.
The local fire service posted a reminder on social media: "As romantic as they are, and as much as we all love 'em, candles can be so dangerous."
My wife LOVES "The Bachelor" and I alway comment on how much of a fire hazard it is when they set up the dates on the show. I'm shocked they haven't burnt down a few buildings in the run of the show.
The good news is that the woman he was proposing to still said "Yes!", so it seems he at least took the ring with him. Let's hope that's not a bad sign for how the marriage is gonna play out though!
