A man who tried to replicate a TV stunt ended up setting off a massive fire that damaged 32 buildings, displaced at least 18 people and forced the city to declare a state of emergency.

According to officials, it all began because a man wanted to imitate a stunt he’d seen on TV. The fire broke out Thursday in a neighborhood in Cohoes, New York.

Cohoes Fire Department Chief, Joseph Fahd said the man was trying to bend metal with fire in a barrel. He was trying to create a sword like something he’d seen done in the TV show, “Forged in Fire.”

The reality show pits bladesmiths against each other as they compete to recreate historical weapons. But it was very windy that day. And the extreme wind conditions caused the fire to spread several blocks, Fahd said. It took firefighters six hours to get the fire under control.

Police charged the man, 51-year-old John Gomes, with fourth-degree arson and reckless endangerment. Mayor Shawn Morse, a firefighter himself for 26 years, called the incident heartbreaking saying, ‘the city is working as hard as it can to rebound and return to a sense of normalcy.”

Published

To every circumstance, there are advantages and disadvantages, such was the simple description of what i could make from the tale of a man given birth to on the 29th of February.


There are times and seasons, Hours, minutes and seconds in each year, even longer days shorter nights, but of the months of the year, February is considered to be incomplete as it usually ends on the 28th day, except the one that falls in a leap year (366 days) that ends on 29th. this however only comes once in four (4) years.

All these facts about the date (29th February) raise a questions within me each time i meet whoever had the date as their birthday.

Questions like, How do you feel whenever its February 28 and you know the next day is March 1?

How does it feel like to get Happy birthday in advance on 28th February and the next day u get greetings like arrears Happy birthday, when u never celebrated it?

I also wonder how such person counts his or her years if the birthday never comes except once in a year? 

What comes to your mind whenever you see people celebrating their regular birthdays? Just to list but a few out of such questions though!

But, Alas! All things bright and beautiful, all creatures great and small… The Creation made them all.
