A list of the most bizarre causes of fire in 2013 has been revealed by the London Fire Brigade.
At the top of the list is a fire incident caused by a dog who hit the controls of a toaster as it leapt on to a worktop to reach food, setting fire to a bag, Metro.co.uk reported.
A teenage boy caused a fire on his first date when he sprayed a can of deodorant on himself, then inexplicably lit what remained in the can, causing an explosion.
Another unlikely cause of fires was a pigeon which dropped a discarded lit cigarette down a chimney, which started a fire in a bird's nest.
Also, a refrigerator's freezer caught fire after a mouse got into the back, shorting the electrics.
A pair of boxer shorts being used to apply linseed oil to a floor caught fire.
