Even future baseball Hall of Famers have to do household chores sometimes, right? And sometimes, well, things don’t go as planned.

Former Atlanta Braves third baseman Chipper Jones admitted on Twitter late Wednesday that he accidentally started a fire in the woods behind his Roswell home.

The Roswell Fire Department couldn’t be reached Wednesday night for more details about the blaze. But Jones followed up with a tweet thanking the firefighters for their quick work.

“I got firefighters all over my place! Thank you Roswell Fire Dept.,” Jones posted.

Jones' girlfriend posted a picture of the ordeal on Twitter.

Jones recently announced that he plans to return to Texas to run his family’s ranch.
