    Very sad indeed for all involved and not something we read about happening every day.

    Hmmmmmmmm. One of my first acts, remove smoke alarm ( which went off every time we cooked ) and fit a CO alarm. I reasoned we were at greater risk from the silent killer ( CO ) then fire.

    Sleeping in a GRP Luton, on a foam mattress on a memory foam topper is not the best place to be in a fire. At least the boiler and kitchen is on the far side of the hab door. But realistically I think "no chance" is the operative phrase.

    My smoke alarm did that, hence removing the battery.

    BTW, I sleep next to the boiler, so I'll know when that goes off.............:ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:
