POTTER MAGIC SETS HOUSE ABLAZE

MADRID (Reuters) - A woman has set her Madrid home on fire while cooking up a potion in an attempt to imitate the fictional wizard Harry Potter, emergency services say.

The 21-year-old was rescued by firemen and treated for minor injuries, but half her home was destroyed.

The ambulance service said she had told them she was trying to emulate the boy magician, hero of the books by J K Rowling that have been a sensation among adults and children alike.

For want of more magical ingredients, the woman cooked up a potion of water, oil, alcohol and toothpaste, local media reported on Wednesday. It was unclear what spell she was trying to weave.
