BERLIN A teenage couple having sex for the
first time were interrupted when candles set fire to the girl's
attic bedroom and forced them to flee naked from her parents'
house, German daily Bild reported on Friday.
The girl had wanted to create a romantic atmosphere for the
occasion. But when the room suddenly became engulfed with
flames, they had to make a hasty escape.
The couple, both 18, were pictured naked in the paper among
the burned wreckage of the attic. A charred teddy had survived
but the fire wrecked the entire top floor of the house causing
around 100,000 euros (68,000 pounds) worth of damage.
