    Let’s hope he snacks on a bag of chips next time.

    A 7-year-old boy almost burned the house down while roasting marshmallows Tuesday in Charlottesville, Va., the Daily Progress reported
     
    The fire started in the pantry.
     
    The boy’s grandmother apparently tried to use an extinguisher to put the fire out, but it wasn’t enough. The fire spread quickly through the kitchen then up to the attic.
     
    Firefighters from eight departments responded to the blaze.
     
    Fortunately, no one was hurt.
