Well, recently, a man’s wedding proposal plan turned into a complete disaster as he ended up burning his house. In a romantic gesture, Albert Ndre had lit hundreds of tea-light candles and filled his room with balloons before proposing to his girlfriend. After decorating his flat in Sheffield, Albert went to fetch his girlfriend from work. However, by the time he returned home with her, his flat was enveloped in flames, reports Times Now.

The fire crew, who doused off the flames, shared images of the burnt room on social media and narrated the entire incident as a precautionary tale for others.

The fire officers explained how the unattended candles with balloons in the room led to the fire.

While the fire was dealt with quickly and no injuries were reported, the department warned people to use candles with caution. They mentioned that individuals should never leave candles unattended.
