Sorry guys but there is certainly insufficient information upon which to vote!!! So the house is on fire but how did the "FIREFIGHTER" (trained to fight all kinds of fires) come to be fatally injured at the fire scene??? I'd like to see this organization make a presentation of what was wrong with the design so that we can vote as well learn from th eerror.
