[ARCHIVED] Thursday's Thought - Fire is Deadly

Fatal Fire

Fire is DEADLY!

Did you know, that smoke and toxic gases kill more people than flames do?

Fire uses up the oxygen you need and produces smoke and poisonous gases that kill. Breathing even small amounts of smoke and toxic gases can make you drowsy, disoriented and short of breath. The odorless, colorless fumes can lull you into a deep sleep before the flames reach your door. You may not wake up in time to escape.
