This is something that we will probably see more and more of as video and security cameras are pretty much everywhere these days. This one is well worth it to show to:
-Elected Officials/City Hall Dwellers-yep
This fire killed 4 people at a Point Pleasant Beach (NJ) motel in March, and it started when one of the residents fell asleep standing up while smoking a cigarette over a chair…and it was caught on video.
Portions of the videotape capture the minutes before the fire broke out at the Mariner’s Cove Motel on March 21 and show how
the fire spread so quickly that authorities said patrons in nearby rooms had little chance of getting out.
Video also shows Mariner’s Cove Motel resident John Alberti walk into the lounge area on the second floor and fall asleep standing up while smoking a cigarette. Embers from Alberti’s cigarette fell into the corner of a chair, which quickly ignited. Four people, including Alberti, were killed in the March fire.
HERE are the videos:

This is a GREAT opportunity to share this and pass it on… so the un-knowing (about fire) can become the knowing.
