Re: Did a STUPID thing. ALWAYS be careful with fire!
I had a very similar situation.... I put some coals on a very very thick czech crystal ashtray (by the way... my mom used to love that really expensive ash tray, lol ) and I thought it would be OK because the ashtray was really thick, but... In a matter of 30 seconds the ash tray exploded and my mom almost got a heart attack....
