August 6, 1981

On August 6, 1981, Firemen in Indianapolis, Indiana, answered a false alarm in the city. When they returned to their station, it was on fire and burning down. The cause? A grease fire that occurred in the kitchen, because they didn’t turn the oven off. This is a case of real irony. Now if someone could just send Alanis Morissette a note, I’m sure every English teacher in the world would be appreciative.
