Even future baseball Hall of Famers have to do household chores sometimes, right? And sometimes, well, things don’t go as planned. Former Atlanta Braves third baseman Chipper Jones admitted on Twitter late Wednesday that he accidentally started a fire in the woods behind his Roswell home. “Tried to do my daily chores and cleaned out the fireplace,” Jones posted around 8 p.m. “Went and dumped the ashes. Alls good right? Nope. Set the woods on fire! Ugh.” According to Roswell Fire Department Deputy Chief Paul Piccirilli, the fire burned an area of woods approximately 30 feet in diameter. The flames were doused with one fire engine and one hose. Piccirilli told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution that firefighters were on the scene for about 45 minutes. He said Thursday that Jones would not face any charges in connection with the woods fire.
