    THANK YOU!

    I WAS LOOKING FOR A GOOD ARTICLE TO SHOW PEOPLE ON MIVTZOIM IF THEY WOULD BRING SOMETHING UP TO BLAME SHABBOS OBSERVANCE ON THE FIRE. THANK YOU FOR A WELL -WRITTEN ARTICLE! MAY WE HAVE MOSHIACH NOW AND AND END TO ALL TRAGEDIES.

    Refreshing to read some common sense feedback. I hope this is what most of us were already thinking. Thanks a lot for saying what I would like to believe the silent majority thinks.

    There is such a lack of basic and obvious common sense today. So much reactionary responses. To fix problems and address issues is important and should always be done. But the reactionary and wholesale attacks, critique, and emotional outbursts are so rampant today.

    Thank you

    I think it’s clearly a sign that if all hidden kept just one shabbos together then moshiach will come already!

    Was the hotplate dropped?

    Questions were raised as to how the hotplate, which had a good safety record, that this could have happened. Keep in mind that any appliance, if dropped or roughed in any way, can result in a defect. So you have to both: Use smoke/fire detectors, and, if the appliance was mishandled – “when in doubt, do without…”

    Do you know how many fires are caused by Xmas trees each year ?
