‘Grinch’ Flicks Cigarette on Dr. Seuss Float, Setting it on Fire Just Before Christmas Parade
HUNTSVILLE, Ala. - A real-life Grinch set fire to Whoville, burning down the Dr. Seuss-themed float before it could reach the Huntsville Christmas Parade in Alabama Thursday. Jeananne Jackson, the creator of the group behind the float, told WHNT someone flicked a cigarette from another car while they were driving on South Memorial Parkway. Jackson said her husband was driving the truck with the float and she was in another vehicle and saw everything happen.
