Smokey Bear will be very disappointed when he hears the news. Chipper Jones sent out a couple of concerning tweets in which he says he says he started a forest fire.

Lol. Tried to do my daily chores and cleaned out the fireplace. Went and dumped the ashes. Alls good right? Nope. Set the woods on fire! Ugh

I got firefighters all over my place! Thank you Roswell Fire Dept.

Jones also retweeted this picture:

Needless to say, Jones is keeping it interesting in retirement.
