I hate how certain elements are honed in on when things fall aside from the 'norm'.

If a couple of Baptists had lit candles for romantic ambiance, would the headlines be "Baptist Sex Ceremony Causes Deadly Fire"?

This story is horrible for so many reasons and it has nothing to do with the voodoo sex ceremony.<br><br>
"<i>The candles were accidentally knocked over during the ceremony prompting the man to douse the flames with water and open a window in an effort to clear smoke from the room, the statement said.</i><br><i>Forty mile-per-hour wind gusts instead shot the flames back inside the room, it said, creating a "<b>blowtorch effect</b>" that whipped through the open window and pushed the fire into the building's fourth floor hallway</i>. "<br><br>
That scares the hell outta me.<br><br><i>"Nearly 200 firefighters from 44 companies took seven hours to bring the fire under control</i>."<br><br>
Holy crap!! How big was this apartment?<br><br>
"<i>The fire left an elderly woman dead and injured 20 firefighters and three Brooklyn residents, according to a New York Fire Department statement</i>."<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":("><br><br>
"<i>Time and time again we respond to tragedies that could have been so easily prevented," Fire Commissioner Salvatore J. Cassano said in the statement. "This fire had so many of those elements ... hopefully others will learn from this tragedy</i>."<br><br>
WTF????? Like the "blowtorch effect" from the massive wind gusts??

It looks like she accidentally got the bad luck ceremony instead of the good luck ceremony.</div>

Now I feel bad for laughing at that.

Well, how about not putting lit candles on the floor right next to your bed? Kinda like not putting them under curtains either. I thought that was just common sense.

Common sense isn't common.
