      Power was turned off, otherwise the fireman would not be standing there as he does. You are the prime nominee for the award you speak of. ;)

    Bald Eagles do that near my home, although their nests, which can weigh up to 1 ton, never catch fire like that. Although, I do occasionally come accross fried ravens, their burnt skeletons still klinging to a wire.
