I am writing a paper about the dangers of torch-down roofing and am looking for examples of fires (like this one) caused by use of roofing torches to bolster my case against their use. Would you be willing to allow me to use this photo? If so, can you tell me where it is, and any other information you can share. Thank you for any help you can offer.
