    Burn A Mouse Lose Your House

    Luciano Mares, 81, of Fort Sumner said he caught the mouse inside his house and wanted to get rid of it.

    "I had some leaves burning outside, so I threw it in the fire, and the mouse was on fire and ran back at the house," Mares said from a motel room Saturday.

    Village Fire Chief Juan Chavez said the burning mouse ran to just beneath a window of the nearby home. The flames spread up the window and throughout the house.

    All contents of the home were destroyed, he said. No injuries were reported.

    Unseasonably dry and windy conditions have charred more than 53,000 acres and destroyed 10 homes in southeastern New Mexico in recent weeks.

    "I've seen numerous house fires," village Fire Department Capt. Jim Lyssy said, "but nothing as unique as this one."

    Damn - now if he had had a mouse gun .................

    Maybe shouldn't laugh tho at the poor old fella's misfortune. I mean actually - it's not what many folks would predict is it!

    I guess - dead mouse on the burning leaves = OK. Live mouse on the fire - catastrophe in this case.

    Who'd have thought a mouse would stay lit (sp?) that long? (Guess mice don't "drop and roll"!)
