KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — A woman allegedly melted her bathtub after she tried to cook barbecue brisket in it, WVLT reports.

Authorities were called to a residence in reference to a fire and upon arrival, discovered a woman fanning light smoke that was coming from her bathroom, officials say.

Knoxville Fire Department captain DJ Corcoran said the woman attempted to cook brisket in her fiberglass bathtub and the heat melted the material, which led to water pouring into the neighbors residence below.
