LA Times – Residents of a Costa Mesa duplex were burning candles and sage to ward off evil spirits just before a fire broke out Tuesday night, fire officials said. Costa Mesa firefighters were called to the two-story duplex at 350 Avocado St. at 9:40 p.m., said fire Capt. Chris Coates. Coates suggested that residents monitor candles closely to help prevent a fire. “Anytime you have an open flame burning inside your residence, it can be very dangerous,” he said.

Man, nothing worse than trying to ward off evil spirits and burning your house down, huh? That’s a tough day right there. You’re already being haunted like you read about and then boom, things take a hard left turn and get worse. And Captain Chris Coates gives some sage advice, doesn’t he? Who knew that open flames can be dangerous? That’s stuff you can only learn at the Police Academy. Anyway, score one for the evil spirits I guess?

PS- Why do we only use “ward off” when discussing evil spirits? They’re basically the only thing we ward off.

PPS- Avocado Street is so L.A. it hurts.
