Cooking in duck blind ends in boat fire

This is from a post on the Louisiana Ducks Unlimited Facebook page by Jennifer Moseley on 12/21/19.

Y'all stay safe out there.

My son and two friends were in a horrible accident this morning. They started to cook breakfast in their blind like they’ve done a hundred times before. Suddenly my sons sleeve caught on fire and in a panic he started swinging his arm and his waders that were around his ankles caught on fire. He was sitting next to the gas tank and it caught on fire along with the blind. One of his friends grabbed him and threw him in the water. He jumped back in the boat to get his gun. Some hunters that were close by came to help and they were all screaming at him to get out of the boat. Within seconds everything around him including the blind was on fire. When he jumped, the gas tank blew. They said it was like watching a movie. Thankfully, by the grace if God and help from fellow hunters, they are shaken up, but all ok.

I don’t know who the men were that helped them and they didn’t get their names, but I want to thank them from the bottom of my heart for helping my boy and his friends. God certainly had you in the right place at the right time. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU. May God bless you beyond measure. I know this could have been a lot worse.
May the fleas of a thousand camels infest the hind end of poachers and may their arms be too short to scratch!!

Glad he was ok but how dumb can you be with an open fire around gas.
A bad day fishing is better than good day at work!

I have to agree. The gas and all the dry materials used in making a duck blind. Thankfully for them, it didn’t turn out worse.
