Crematory Tried to Cremate an 800-Pound Person and the Entire Place Caught Fire
A person who weighs approximately 800 pounds recently died in Richmond, Virginia. I'm assuming there's no casket that could handle that, so the family had them cremated.
A company called Southside Cremation Services took on the challenge of cremating the body on Wednesday, but it was just too much for their equipment to handle.
The cremation process created too much heat and wound up setting the entire crematory on fire.
The fire department put it out, fortunately no one was hurt and the place wasn't damaged too badly. The crematory is planning to take another shot at the cremation process soon.
