    Another death by a cooking fire.When will we invent something that prevents such tragic events. I hope soon, I know that cooking fires are the number one cause of house fires. Check the NFPA stats.

    TO ME: Has it ever occured to you that the reason that officials DO NOT release the victims names is because family members have yet to be contacted of their loved one's passing??? How would you feel if you found out by reading a comment that one of your loved one's had passed away unexpectedly and in such a way, or would you rather be told in person or atleast in a much gentler way? I myself learned of a loved one in a horrific way and I still remember that as if it happened seconds ago. Word for word! Try to think of the family that is or will be going through so much next time. PLEASE
