Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep. It's said revenge is a dish best served cold. Unfortunately, if you burn your ex's love letters, something has to be hot. Police in Lincoln, Neb., say a woman went through a breakup and set old love letters on fire with a butane torch - in her apartment. She then took a nap while leaving embers on the carpet and woke to find the apartment on fire. The apartment was damaged, though she was all right and will live to love again.
