In Santa Rosa, a retriever's dog bowl ignited a house fire which burned a small part of the home's siding last week. Just a bit of concentrated sunlight refracting off of the dog's shiny water bowl could have burned down the house. Scary?

This story is so close to home, its incredible. I recently moved my cat's' bowl out of the sun because I thought the bowl would get too hot for them to eat .

I always keep water dish in shaded area, so it stays cool, but on really hot days I will change it often. Good to know.
