Santa Gifts Magnifying Glass to Read but Texas Boy Uses It to Burn the Backyard

Texas boy sent his Christmas up in flames after the naughtily used the magnifying glass gifted by Santa to do something other than reading. It’s an unforgettable Christmas for Nissa-Lynn Parson while her teenage son burnt the entire backyard using the magnifying glass on sunlight.

“Cayden asked for a magnifying glass for Christmas,” Parson said in a video posted to Facebook. “We thought, ‘Oh, he wants to magnify something.’ No, he wanted to see if he can make fire with it, and they did.”

“The other son in the background, ‘Yay, now we can light stuff on fire.’ And we’re like, oh dear,’” Justin Parson told the television station.

“Everything was under control until the boys came running into the house telling us that a corner of the lawn was on fire and the Christmas lights were melting!” Parson posted. “Justin and I rushed outside to see the entire front lawn turning black!”

The fire quickly spread, generating a cloud of smoke within minutes that one of the couple’s sons said was “as high as the tree. What a sight to see – a bunch of people running around crazy trying to put a front lawn fire out while wearing matching Christmas jammies!” Parson wrote on Facebook.

The blaze ended up scorching the front yard of the family home, in addition to destroying some of the Christmas lights out front. The family, however, is grateful that no major damage or injuries resulted from the blaze.

“No burning, like, it is in house. I want it like only for reading or words,” she told FOX4, adding that her son now has some hard work of his own ahead

“They will definitely have yard work to do once spring comes,” she said Saturday.
