It is probably a good thing the landlord installed the smoke alarms, and that he was on hand to do the Paul Revere thing. The apartments upstairs from the origin of the fire could have become deathtraps.
Government fire statistics show that 40% of apartment fire deaths take place in smoking-related fires.
So what do you know about fire safe cigarettes..? The will not stay lite long enough to start a fire.! I think someone is lying here.?

Perhaps FSCs haven't been on the scene long enough to have impacted statistics or statistic-gathering. Once they have been, perhaps I will have to stop citing this particular statistic as anything but exemplifying the "bad old days".
Meanwhile, events such as this one will continue to encourage owners/managers to shift apartment buildings into the smoke-free zone, and the statistics will alter even faster/more.
Who cares about statistics, fact is FSC smokes wont stay lite long enough to start a fire.! To bad you dont have a clue.

How on earth did I miss this story? I recognize the building that burned. It's rather ironic that the National Fire Academy is only a hop,skip and jump from it.(about one mile)
Smokers cause millions of dollars in smoking related fire damage every year. They also kill a lot of people. >;~(

You should re-visit some of the FSC threads on the forum. There, your fellow smokers whine and bitch because (they say) FSCs are more likely than earlier cigarettes to cause fires. I guess it depends what aspect of smoking regulation is being discussed, though, doesn't it? At least, it does to the addict whose convenient fix is threatened.
Well all I know is what I have experienced. If you lite a FSC cigarette and walk away for just a few seconds. It goes out, and has to be re lit.!
Unless the person had a stash of older smokers. Otherwise I dont see it happening.

Yes I'M sure. I've taken a number of courses at the, Fire Academy in Emmitsburg,
and we covered it pretty will. I suggest you Google "Cigarette related fires" and see the large number of reports for yourself. >:~)

A Number of people roll their own cigarettes and still have older tubes or paper that is not "fire safe". The party in question was said to always roll his own cigarettes. He was using such non-fire-safe paper. Bummer! >;~(

Hey arent you the guy who says you donīt have to prove nothin to no one? You don have to follow any rules or guidelines on how you post, you will do what you want.
You seem to be a little hypocritical, and in looking how you post to everyone else you really are cantankerous!
I sure hope its only in topix because if you are this way all the time, you must lead a fairly solitude life? Oh well thats your business, smoking in public on the other hand, well thats everyone's business.

Now back to this story, this sucks and another reason why smoking should be banned from any place where the public gathers under one roof. When one individual controls the fate of an entire community where health and safety are concerned, then that is a bad thing!
