Disaster trying to burn a DVD

    I tried to burn a DVD yesterday. I ended up calling the fire
    department when the house filled with smoke and the kitchen drapes
    caught on fire. Luckily I had dishwater in the sink and tossed the
    DVD and drapes it in there. The fire dept. had to evacuate the house
    because they said the burning plastic was toxic, and they put fans in
    the windows. It looks like I will have to repaint the whole house,
    since the walls are all covered with black soot now. That's the last
    time I try to burn a DVD, at least indoors.

    Haven't you ever burned a CD before? The same exact thing should have
    happened, so why didn't you learn your lesson the first time?

    That's nothing. I burned a coaster once. If you think a plastic disc
    will burn fast, you should see what happens to cork and wood!
