A surprising event
The basic story is, when I was finishing loading up the wood stove for the night before I went to sleep I closed the door to the loaded wood stove, and saw what looked like a very regular piece of charred wood on the lip of the wood stove. It looked off to me, so I picked it up, and brushed it. When the ash came off and it was clear it took me a moment to figure out what it was because I was so tired. My first thought was "How did glass get into the wood" followed by "shit!" I opened the door, and checked the corners of the glass, and that's exactly what it was. I pulled the wood that wasn't fully involved in the fire out, and got it into a snow pile outside. I stayed up watching the last piece that was fully burning until it self extinguished with water and a fire extinguisher ready if it overfired, or did anything dangerous.
