:( I don’t ever use emoticons but I don’t even know how to express my sadness for her in words. Also sad is that the fire sent three people to the hospital. No word on their exact condition yet, but they are believed to be doing okay.
Oh God, and here’s the worst part: this all started because of a candle in the living room. A simple candle that accidentally somehow fell on the couch and grew into an uncontrollable fire. I often light candles in in my apartment, and I’m hesitant to even run to the bathroom while leaving them lit and unattended in the living room. Yes, it’s rare that these things happen. But it did, and Ms. Greene is apparently feeling guilty and devastated.
I guess this serves as a good wake-up call. There are accidents happen that we can prevent and we can’t take anything for granted.
