This is very fortunate that no one is injured. Following safety guidelines strictly, can keep our life 100% safe. We should always follow some basic rules for fire protection, which I’ve mentioned below.

1. Install Smoke Detectors at your home and work places
2. Always be careful while cooking
3. Drop and roll: if fire catches your clothes then never run. STOP running and roll over to reduce the flame
4. Use safety guard for electric devices.
5. Match box is always for adults’ use.
6. Do not use elevators in fire affected building. Always use stairs and emergency exits.
7. Consult with a Fire Safety Expert.

Who would have thought that you would have to deal with spam on your blog Mike? I wish I could be 100% safe! That might put us out of a job!
