    Thank a fire fighter for a quick response. That's a lot of people, 9, to go out into the night. "Cause of the fire was accidental" leaves out the real reason...was it smoking, drinking, or smoking and drinking, or candles. I doubt anyone was frying chicken that time of night. The Red Cross should get motel discounts. There's been a lot of displacing fires int he last year.

    So, did the "fire rip through the duplex" or was it "contained in a room on the second floor"?? Those 2 statements seem contradictory to me.
