Never smoke while cleaning a lawnmower in your bedroom

“A Mount Gambier woman has warned the community against smoking while cleaning lawnmowers in bedrooms.”

Opening sentence in a report on a woman who caused $5,000 worth of damage to her home after dropping a cigarette while cleaning a lawnmower in a spare bedroom. Lauren Goldsworthy was convicted of arson when she was eighteen but swears she did not start the fire deliberately this time.

The article is now being circulated around the world, leading to concern from this Mount Gambier resident who is mildly worried about the negative impact of the story on his town (but not so worried that he did not supply links to other reports on the story). 

Mount Gambier will forever more be associated with lawnmowers, bedrooms and cigarettes. And possibly melted vacuum cleaners too.
