Former Atlanta Braves third baseman Chipper Jones has had an interesting post-playing career. Not only has started to talk a lot more than people remember, but he’s made a habit of tweeting up bizarre and random storms every so often, just to keep us all on our toes.

If you live anywhere near Jones does, you were definitely on your toes last night. According to the man himself, Chipper Jones started a forest fire last night in his backyard.

 

The fire was contained and eventually put out by local firefighters, but the damage is clearly still done. While Chipper Jones is a famous Braves legend, a future Hall of Famer and one of the best third baseman in recent history, he’s also the guy who started his backyard on fire and then tweeted about it.
