    maybe they should go after people who are stupid enough to have a fire like a candle or similar in a house while sleeping....

    nah, that would go direction "education" ... and we all know that the people here are way higher educated than in the US or Europe

    The lack of common sense is sadly found in all cultures. I think it is like a gene. Either you have it or you don't!

    Why save lives in a country where the population had nearly doubled in 25 years, and is continuing to explode??

    They are even importing rice from neighboring countries. As for jobs, people have ot leave the country to even get employment.

    Don't think saving lives will be a top priority. Sad, but true....

    There's a type of person that thinks about how to get out of a structure they sleep in in case of a fire, and a type of person that it would never occur to think about something like that.

    Personally, in a hotel or other unfamiliar place, I always plan how I would get out in the night if there was fire or smoke.
    And I sleep with a flashlight next to my pistol on the nightstand.

    Yes, last couple winters we've had a few down here burn to death from their lighted candles and falling asleep. Darwin would be proud.....

    In Alaska

    We call it stupid dust and it falls out of the sky, lands on everybody, but only a certain number of people are able to absorb it.
    It's tragic that they have to die so the rest of us can learn a lessons that's in this tragedy.
