    Default Beer Cans Prevent Escape From Fire

    http://www.liveleak.com/view?i=1a7_1189204074

    A Cincinnati area man who died in a house fire early Wednesday morning may have survived if his escape had not been blocked by a large pile of beer cans.

    Fire crews were called to the Franklin Township home before 6 a.m. and found heavy smoke and fire coming from the structure.

    "My daughter woke me up because her bedroom is over in the front of the house and she seen the flames on her window," Wayne Kendrick said

    Firefighters initially said no one was hurt, but one person, Robert McCarty, 37, was unaccounted for.

    Crews working inside the home found McCarty's body shortly after 10 a.m., and investigators said his exit was blocked by a 5-foot tall stack of beer cans.

    A caller to 911 said he couldn't get the door open.

    Caller: "Yeah I tried to kick the front door open. It feels like something is in front of the door. I kicked the lock open but I can't get the door all the way open and nobody responded. "

    911 Operator: "It feels like something is in front of the door?"

    Caller: "Yeah."

    Damage to the home was extensive and estimated at $70,000. The cause of the fire was determined to be an overloaded circuit breaker.

    Wow that's a lotta beer cans! Maybe he was saving them for recycling to buy the next supply.

    I found a lot of humor in this statement and found it to be a little incorrect to say the very least "Other than having a minor drinking problem, he was basically clean and organized person."


    I think it's safe to say that this guy was single.

    That because you need to try these Frost Brew Liners Ray. Bottle beer is just polluting the environment if you would have grown up in the country you would know that.

    Actually, I grew up drinking everything in cans. My dad made the damn things for a living, so nobody bought bottles of anything.

    But it's a simple fact that beer (and soda, for that matter) simply tastes better in a glass bottle. And glass hasn't been linked to Alzheimer's disease like Aluminum is. My dad has long since retired, so even he drinks bottled beer now.

    But glass is recyclable, and many states have that deposit thing on every bottle anyway, so I don't get your environmental argument

    And why the fuck do you keep calling me "Ray"??

    Would you prefer Rodale? That is just what we call each other out here ether Ray or Rodale. I just thought Ray was fitting. LOL It is just a joke man you know. Like when you are hanging out with your good friends BSín, that is just what we do out here.

    As far as I know every bottle of beer goes into the trash at least every one I seen at the bar last night did. If they do recycle them then that is great. But being a land owner and growing up on property one thing I can stand is broken glass. Aluminum Cans you throw those out some one is going to pick them up and cash in. We donít have a deposit on drink containers here yet. Has that been proven that Aluminum is linked to Alzheimerís? I guess it is just a matter of taste I prefer cans when I am at home when at the bar it is bottles.

    Well I don't drink draft beer it gives me a head ach.

    I am curious about if those cans where full or empty, I can see where maybe he could not kick the door open if they where full but empty I would think they would just fall over. Maybe they where some of the old steel cans like the ones before aluminum cans became the standard.
