Albert Ndreu of Sheffield, South Yorkshire in England wanted to propose to his girlfriend, Valerija Madevic, in the most special of ways.
Ndreu decorated their apartment with candles and balloons to surprise her, even spelling out "Marry me?" with flaming tea lights spread out on the floor.
Well, after Ndreu decorated everything, and left to go pick up Madevic, their apartment burned down. Completely.
Ndreu had been been planning the proposal for over two weeks, and had spent more than four hours setting up the apartment.
