My wife was smoking fish last night and heard a funny noise coming from outside. She ran out thinking a bear was getting into the smoker and found it fully ablaze. A couple of fire extinguishers had knocked it down enough that she and the neighbor had time to get the hose hooked up and douse it just as the fire department showed up. The firemen where more bummed about the 15 lbs of silvers that went up in flames than the little fire.
The smoker was made of 1/4 inch ply wood on a 2x2 frame. It was 5 ft tall and 3 wide by 2 deep. Wife said the flames where 6-8 feet tall coming off the top of it.
Thanks to my neighbor for coming running when my wife hit the panic button on the car (air) horns and thanks to the guys at the Eagle River fire station for stopping by.
