LONGVIEW, Wash. A Longview man s creative crackling invention has earned him big bucks and could give you some rest and relaxation, too.

George Ford, 46, spent nearly two years and $35,000 filming the perfect fireplace fire.

Then, he made it into an hour-long video called Fireplace for Your Home, which is similar to the popular Yule Log that many people watch over the holidays.

Ford originally released the DVD in 2010 to Direct TV. But it didn t start to skyrocket until Netflix picked it up and started running a special trailer this month to promote it. Now it's also available through Amazon Prime and Hulu.

Ford said he's enjoying the hot profits from his unique fireplace video.
