Crystal Ball Ignites TV

According to firefighters, sun glared through the ball, igniting the back of the woman's TV, which in turn ignited her couch. She assessed her damages at around $20k! Even more, she had been forced into temporary accommodations, as her leasing company said repairs would take nearly two months.
