A warning to those barbecuing this summer – be careful when grilling! 

A home suffered roof damage after a grill set a nearby tree on fire. 

It happened in Pittsburg Saturday afternoon when a man was barbecuing in his backyard. 

The embers from the barbecue grill drifted onto a tree, setting it on fire. 

Embers from the burning tree then landed on his neighbor’s roof. 

Firefighters were able to quickly put out both fires.
