Chipper Jones Accidentally Set Woods Ablaze Near His House

Tristan ThornburghSocial Media StaffJanuary 23, 2014

Former Atlanta Braves third baseman Chipper Jones needs to be more careful with his daily chores.

In an attempt to get rid of fireplace ashes, the eight-time All-Star accidentally started a forest fire. 

Chipper shared some tweets earlier in the night that, as Deadspin's Tom Ley pointed out, seemed rather ominous but included an "Lol," which did not make the situation sound very serious. 

Photos from his neighbor revealed, however, that the fire was actually fairly widespread. 

You might want to stick to just taking out the trash, Chipper.
