Try to tell your insurer how your tortoise set the house on fire…

The Sun

A couple returned home to find their house had been set on fire by their tortoise [Fred] …Emma, 30, and partner Paul Butler, 45, left Fred – a female – in a tank under a heat lamp to keep her warm enough to stay alive [during the Winter].

But Fred piled her dry straw under the lamp and it caught alight, spreading flames through the house.Emma – who also has a dog and two baby tortoises – said: “We were out shopping when we got a call from the fire brigade saying that our tortoise had set the house on fire. Luckily our neighbour had heard the smoke alarm go off and called the fire brigade.”
