The Great Artichoke Becomes a Mulch Fire Averted

After the Great Artichoke Disaster of 2008 last night, I put the still smoldering hot pot down on a dead planted pot on my balcony. Because my apartment had filled up with smoke, I turned off the a/c and left my balcony doors open for the night.
This morning I came out to find my living room seemed to still have a smoky haze going on. I looked on the balcony to see my former planted pot smoking significantly! I pulled the melted artichoke pot off of it to discover a mulch fire in progress.
Apparently I forgot all those years as a volunteer fire fighter I spent putting out mulch fires. I cannot believe I was so stupid!
And now I am at work, paranoid that I smell like a mulch fire. It's going to be a long day.
