If one day you come home and discover that you’re locked out of your house I would strongly recommend calling a local locksmith and not, as Lorean Simmons did, set fire to your house.
A local Pittsburgh newspaper has reported that Simmons, 57, came home to discover she’d locked herself out. Instead of calling a locksmith however she proceeded to set fire to her awning so that the fire department would respond and open her door.
When the firefighters arrived and put out the fire, which nearly spread to neighbouring homes, they caught on to her little scam and called the police. She was arrested and charged of arson.
