    My condolences to this man's family and friends. Having had my house catch fire in the middle of the night, I know how all this security we're forced to live with (gates, burglar bars) can make it impossible to escape. It's one of the most terrifying experiences.

    Well! Let's look at the bright side. We don't all go with a bang after all. I'm sure he's done his share of hell! He may now continue the rest of his journey without that worry...
