ROSWELL, Ga. —

Even future baseball Hall of Famers have to do household chores sometimes, right? And sometimes, well, things don’t go as planned.

Former Atlanta Braves third baseman Chipper Jones admitted on Twitter late Wednesday that he accidentally started a fire in the woods behind his Roswell home.

“Tried to do my daily chores and cleaned out the fireplace,” Jones posted around 8 p.m. “Went and dumped the ashes. Alls good right? Nope. Set the woods on fire! Ugh.”

The Roswell Fire Department couldn’t be reached Wednesday night for more details about the blaze. But Jones followed up with a tweet thanking the firefighters for their quick work.


“I got firefighters all over my place! Thank you Roswell Fire Dept.,” Jones posted.

Jones recently announced that he plans to return to Texas to run his family’s ranch.
