Ga. man cleaning with blowtorch sets house on fire

SARGENT, Ga. (AP) - Would-be cleaners take note: A blowtorch is not a
good substitute for a broom. Coweta County authorities said Galen
Winchell set fire to his west Georgia home Wednesday as he cleaned
cobwebs from exterior eaves with a blowtorch. Winchell noticed the blaze
when he saw smoke pouring from the attic.

Coweta Fire Investigator James Gantt says the fire was contained to one
part of the house, but the entire home had smoke and water damage.
No one was hurt. No phone number was listed for Winchell.
