Wednesday was not Robert James Fimbres’ night. Thursday wasn’t looking good either. The Napa County man tried to set Old Glory ablaze in his father’s driveway and things got out of hand. He burned down Dad’s garage instead, American Canyon police say.

Let’s not jump to contusions. It might have been damaged and he might have been burning it to properly dispose of it. While high as a kite.

The real reason leftists don't observe Thanksgiving? All of them decided to try deep-frying their turkeys, with the same result.

This has to be the first time I’ve laughed about burning old glory. Revenge of the Stars and Stripes, it makes me smile. I hope the cops threw him in jail and his dad kicks his azz when he gets out.

I’m in Marin County,Ca. not far from the American Canyon location. The hills are dried out and feathery brown right now. All it would take to create a disaster effecting thousands of residents, would be for a strong wind to pick up sparks from fire like this one. What a DOPE!!

He needs to go from school to school describing what he did that was wrong and dangerous. The perils of Alpha Fires.

Right now there’s a fire burning nearby that’s only 30% contained.

Residents have been told to watch and be ready but not evacuated yet AFAIK.

Burned down Dad’s garage, now homeless. Probably all of his belongings went up in flames too.

Was it wrapped around a hornet’s nest? That’s another popular method to burn down a perfectly good garage.

Oooh! Another “wildfire!”

The only way to put those out is with a disaster relief aid package.

Dad, I know I burned down your garage/my bedroom and all your tools, but can I sleep on the couch in the living room until the trial? 😂

28y/o and living in daddy’s basement.

Napa is another liberal shithole.
