Missouri: Dog sets fire to house after turning on stove

Confusing video footage shows the moment a dog managed to turn on a kitchen stove and start a fire.

The big dog managed to put both of its front legs up on the kitchen counter and use its paws to turn on the gas stove.

Moments later, the puppy wandered into the hallway and the stove burst into flames at the home in Missouri, USA.

Emergency services were baffled when they arrived at the scene and found only two rescue dogs inside, reports have said UPI.

An investigation into the cause of the fire, which broke out while the dog owners were away, has been launched.

Security footage from the living area later showed one of the four-legged occupants being behind the fire.

Crews from the Kansas City Fire Department and Southern Platte Fire Protection District rushed to the scene after smoke billowed from the kitchen.

Security cameras at the Missouri home captured the dog turning on the stove



Firefighters reviewed footage from inside the home and found that one of the dogs had stood on its hind legs to examine a pan on the stove.

The dog accidentally turned on the heater and then disappeared from view.

Investigators said the pan still contained food from a previous meal and the heat caused a grease fire about eight minutes after the dog activated the stove.

The house was badly damaged



The home in the Riss Lake neighborhood of Parkville was badly damaged after the fire.

Neither dog was injured in the fire reported in June.

Appliances, candles, Christmas decorations, and electrical appliances are the leading causes of home fires in the United States, according to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA).

Footage showed the incredulous moment the dog lit the fire



Pets and animals aren’t even among the top 10 causes of home fires, which are often blamed on faulty appliances, candles, and poor electrical plumbing.

Other top fire starters include people falling asleep while smoking, chemicals and gasses, lightning, children unknowingly playing with fire or matches at home, barbecue grills, and regular fires getting out of control.

Firefighters were called after smoke billowed from the kitchen



The NFPA reported 490,500 home fires in the United States in 2020, including nearly 1.39 million reported fires of all types.

Home fires claimed 2,730 lives, 13,000 injuries and left $12.1 billion worth of property damage.
