Japanese streamer Daasuke took a break from playing Minecraft to show off his new oil-match lighter. That’s when things got bad. Real bad.

Daasuke admitted that he wasn’t sure how to use the lighter. He filled it up with lighter fluid and ended up accidentally setting his room on fire.

According to one news report (below), the house’s second floor caught fire. The 40 year-old live streamer as well as his 73-year-old mother, 68 year-old father, and a 62 year-old relative sustained injuries. We hope that they were not serious.
