Massive Fire Breaks Out at The Froning Family Ranch

Rich Froning: "Turns out sage grass and catalytic converters don’t mix."

“The idea was get a bunch of guys together and buy cars with a $500 limit and race them out in the field. Turns out sage grass and catalytic converters don’t mix. While getting some pre race testing in, my CrossFit Mayhem Dodge Stratus caught on fire as well as my front yard. Thanks to the guys at Putnam County Fire Dept for coming out to help put out the flames, forgot how much I missed the job. Don’t worry festivities resumed and no one was hurt!”

About The Author

Editor-In-Chief at BOXROX. I come from a background of rugby and weightlifting. Growing up in the English Lake District, I spent a great deal of time swimming in its stunning lakes and rivers. In 2015 my brothers and I became the first people to swim the 145km length of the River Eden, from source to mouth, in 9 days. We also swam the Corryvreckan whirlpool, the third largest in the world, and Crossfit is a huge part of my training for these events.
