Deadliest fire in NYC in 25 years claims 12 victims

12 people dead including at least 4 children after a fire in a Bronx apartment building:

Fatal NYC fire started by 3-year-old playing with stove, official says

"A 3-year-old boy's screams alerted his mother that a fire had erupted in their first-floor apartment in the Bronx on Thursday night. The boy had been playing with the burners on the kitchen stove, New York fire officials said Friday.
When the mother fled the burning apartment with the boy and his 2-year-old sibling, she made a fatal mistake -- she left the apartment door open.
The tragic result was the deaths of at least 12 people, including at least four children, the New York Police Department said."


The child apparently had a history of turning on burners,etc.

Why didn't the fire alarms go off? Did the landlord keep them up?

Can we just go ahead and blame this on how Climate Change is affecting the poor and other such nonsense?

Nah, I'm blaming the dumb mother who left a kid unsupervised with a history of doing this shit. This is on her.

A freak one time occurrence is one thing, but this kid had a history of doing this shit.

Why is it a mistake that she fled the apartment with her children when a fire was happening?


Leaving the door open isn't a mistake. I don't like the author of that article. no expression

I believe it's because it allowed the fire to spread? I dunno.

Of course that allowed the fire to spread more quickly. Which may have prevented one or more deaths because it would give more time for them to escape.


But that's hardly a mistake. Not everyone is a fire expert.

I would say the mistake was leaving a child with a history of doing this shit alone lol.

A female terran(aka, a person from earth) got mad when she was cooking and he lifted the lid on the pot to see what it was.

The boy wasn't alone. He was with his mother. And his mother responded to him when he started screaming.

No problems, here.

The expectation that a parent has to have eyes on their small children, 24/7, is absurd. It's not possible.

This is just a very shitty accident.

I disagree. He had a history of doing this, so yup, you keep an eye on him. You don't have him alone in another room if he has a history of this shit.

No, he didn't have a history of doing this. Unless this is the second time he's burned down an apartment complex?


If a history, you mean he plays with things he's curious about, no, that's not a history, that's being a child.
