The Day I Nearly Burned My House Down

Rhona Lewis

We had barely cleaned up from Pesach, when the furnace in the basement in our home in Toronto began to give us trouble. It stopped working twice, but Dad managed to fix it. The third time it stopped working, it made such a loud boom-bang that the wooden floors shook. I heard Dad running down the stairs, past my room and down the steps that lead to the basement. I ran right after him.
