What I don't get is the LIMO Driver's comment:

Limo driver: Deadly fire took just 3 minutes to become inferno, claim lives of 5 women.

I do not understand why it would even take one-minute to pull over and get everybody out; even 1/2 minute should have been plenty of time to escape.

Hopefully the accurate cause of the fire can be determined, and precautions prescribed to prevent another tradegy like this.

There is still time - at least their connecting these tragic deaths somehow to golf, lobstah, benghawoozie and other right wing propaganda.

I have no info other than the news reports but i would think that with smoke already filling the back before the fire, oxygen was low. Then when the fire started there was probably some flamable drinks inside, or a gas tank underneath. Once either one of those caught fire; combined with low oxygen inside, they probably could not breathe when all hell's inferno broke lose. You can be sitting there just fine then all the oxygen is gone and you have but a few sec before you simply black out.
