Chipper Jones on starting forest fire: ‘LOL’

Chipper Jones may not be a pyromaniac, but inadvertently setting a forest fire is no joke.

The retired Atlanta Braves legend posted a message to Twitter Wednesday saying he was doing some chores after returning from vacation. We’ll let him take it from here.

 

 

Jones then retweeted photos of the suburban Atlanta inferno taken by girlfriend Taylor Higgins.

 

Jones was interviewed Thursday by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution about the incident, saying “the smoke was pretty bad. I didn’t see a flame over two or three feet.”

Luckily, his neighbour saw the smouldering grass and contacted the fire department.

What’s more dumber: starting a forest fire or tweeting the fact you started a forest fire?
