12. A snow globe almost burned down a charity shop in Bournemouth on Chrismas Day. Dorset fire service said:
At the risk of sounding like a Christmas tale, the cause of the fire was believed to be sun refracting through a snow globe in the shop window which then ignited 'reindeer food' and fake snow material in their window display. There was severe fire damage to the shop window display, heat damage to the window and severe smoke damage to the entire shop.
Fire Investigator SM Jeneson advises these types of incidents are rare, but are possible, especially with the sun lower in the sky. Consideration should be given to the possibility that this could happen in your homes, particularly with shaving type mirrors which can focus the suns rays and cause fires.
