Pet Tortoise Sets House On Fire

Fred, a 70-year old female tortoise, piled up the straw in her tank under the heat lamp and the rest, well, you know the rest. Luckily, no one was hurt in the fire.

Strangely, another turtle story caught my eye. This one from November 2007:

Two extremes of people. One good and loving; the second horrible and cruel.

Maybe, in a shell-less sort of way ;-)

the turtle woman is a saint. I'd be drop-kicking that turtle if she started a fire at my house.
