THANK GOODNESS NO ONE WAS HURT, and secondly no major property damage was done.

You bring up a good point about fire safety though, when in doubt drown it out. It can make for more clean up of a bbq pit, but that's better than the alternative.

Good thing it didn't happen until you moved the box out to the curb. I would have hated to hear that your garage or house went up in flames.

Glad everyone is okay.

WE in the buisness call that a re-kindle. Days after a house fire has been extinguished a hidden hot spot can re-ignite. I will recomend to everyone that they get a fire place bucket from a local hardware store and put all ashes in it for at least 3-4 days before discarding them. They are cheaper than a fire.

My airtite wood stove will hold hot coals for 24 hours easily after the fire has gone "out". Glad it didn't happen when it was next to your garage !

I put hot ashes in the little Weber kettle I have and then close it up. I let them sit in there for a few days without air before I throw them out. This also works good in the winter with the wood stove ashes.

Of course you could always take a 5 gallon bucket and fill it half with water before you dump ashes into it.
