Little people, big scare. Matt Roloff took to Facebook earlier this week to share a terrifying video of a fire on the farm. “Farms on fire. A miracle I happened to look over and see this…,” he captioned the April 23 post. In the video itself he said, “I don’t see any flames. Oh yeah, there’s a little flame there!”
Immediately, Little People, Big World fans began commenting, with many revealing they’ve experienced something similar. “I remember this happening in our back yard after my dad mowed and raked up a pile of the green grass… composting in overdrive..lol,” someone wrote. Another added, “If mulch is not thoroughly dried, this can happen. While wet, it continues to decompose, which can cause heat. If the heat rises too high, the mulch can actually combust. Once it has been thoroughly dried, it can be applied with little risk of catching on fire. In our area, mulch that is not thoroughly dried is sometimes called green mulch, although it is brown to the untrained eye.” Apparently, everyone’s an expert!
Farms on fire. A miracle I happened to look over and see this..

Others, however, were concerned for his safety. “So stand there and video it and not hose it down. Ya. Real smart,” someone quipped. A second said, “Oh my goodness Matt and Amy. Stay safe and lean on each other during times such as this.”
On a recent episode of LPBW, the two exes sat down to discuss the future of the farm, and it sounded like they might sell. “We’ve been talking a lot about the farm,” Matt said. “Trying to figure out how to keep it or not keep it.” Amy, seeming resistant, then asked, “You’re talking about changing the divorce agreement?”
Back in 2015, Matt and Amy Roloff shocked fans when they announced that the mother-of-four filed for divorce from her husband after nearly three decades of wedded bliss. The two — who share four kids together, twins Jeremy and Zach, Molly, and Jacob — announced their divorce with a statement promising to remain cordial and make it work, for not only their children but also their business.
“After 27 years of marriage, it is with great sadness that we have come to the difficult decision to file for divorce. We are proud of what we have accomplished together, including raising our four wonderful children, who have grown to become remarkable adults and building our strong and ongoing successful businesses,” the statement read. “Our kids and our ever-growing family, and the love and support we have for them, will be our priority. We will continue to work together side-by-side in the daily responsibilities for our many current ventures. We would like to thank our family, friends, and all our fans for their continued support and understanding during this difficult time.” So will they break their agreement. We’ll just have to wait and see. In the meantime, we’re just glad the family is safe.
