A fire that destroyed eight units at an apartment complex in Holland Township, Mich., is believed to have been sparked by a man using a propane torch to cook a squirrel for lunch, the fire chief said.

The resident, whose name was not released, was removing the animal’s fur in preparation to eat it, Kohsel said, according to mlive.com.The resident was on a deck on the third floor of the Clearview

Apartments. He was using a the torch to burn off the squirrel’s fur when the deck caught fire,Fire Chief Jim Kohsel told MLive.com.

Flames spread to the roof and other parts of the building. Eight apartments were destroyed and two dozen other units were damaged by smoke and water, the fire chief said.

The unusual cause of the blaze quickly became the talk at area fire stations.

“That’s about as off-the-wall as it gets,” Plainfield Township Fire Chief David Peterson told mlive.com.

A torch seems like a bit of overkill, lol. A good sharp pocket knife is all you need. Chop off the head, tail, feet and hands, cut a circle around his midsection through the skin, making sure to cut the extra tough "belly string". Dig your fingers in between the skin and meat and pull it apart and the skin will come off just like a sock from either side, taking the fur with it and keeping most if not all of the fur from accidentally getting on the meat. Then all you have to do is cut through the sternum up and out of the neck, then down through the groin, grab the innards and pull and most if not all of them will come out attached to the membranous sack that they are all attached to. At that point you're ready to fry or do whatever you want to prepare the meat. I've eaten plenty of squirrels, in fact I ate my last kill about 2 days ago, and never have I used a blow torch to prepare the little guy, lol.

Squirrel gravy is actually quite good. I've got a suggestion for you, turn off CAPS lock, it doesn't make you sound any more intelligent or manly, it makes you look like a bossy douche.

Think of it this way, in time of war, famine or some unexpected disaster he knows how to survive.

Maybe all he knows is to preparate pork and thought it could be done the same way.
