Mother's Toaster Fire ...

Fire in Sink ... not the original in the story ... sadly!
Our family had a history with domestic fires; one of my mother's favorite anecdotes was of Dad rushing into the kitchen excitedly telling her the Green Bay Packers had just scored. In the kitchen sink beside my mother was a flaming toaster. The fire was licking the bottom of the cupboards, so the flames were about 3 feet high. He never noticed the fire.
