Welp mama, I did almost the same thing when I was pregnant with DS....except I had the shower on with the curtain open (same thing-phone rang and I ran to get it) which drenched the floor and hallway something fierce!
I don't know if this will make you feel better or what....but last Friday I was getting ready to make some soup for myself..I was home alone. DH had left the coffeemaker on the stovetop, sitting partially on the back burner. He does this alot and it doesnt get in the way bc the stove top is pretty big. I put all my soup contents in a pan and stuck it on a front burner...and proceeded to turn the burner on. While waiting for it to heat up, I turned my back to rinse some dishes off, etc. A few minutes later I noticed the dog standing there grunting at me really weird but I didnt think anything about it. A few seconds later I smelled burning plastic....but it didnt hit me yet. THEN it DID! I spun around to see the coffeemaker in flames!!!! And I panicked....but eventually threw the soup and about 10 more pan fulls of water on the small fire which put it out. But I sure had alot of explaining to do when DH got home. :LOL I had turned on the back burner obviously. I do not know where my mind has been lately...but its MIA! If you see it, kindly send it back home! :LOL
Anyway, I am glad that apt was empty too...that is one less stresser for you guys. Hang in there!
