+1. that seems the most plausible imo. they probably forgot to store it properly in their garage after the recieved it.
Right after news of the fire broke out, I was all ready to joke about the incident being an attempt to 'destroy evidence.' I decided it wouldn't be too humorous after all when word got out that quite a few people were seriously hurt and required medical treatment.

I worry that the courage, teamwork, quick thinking, action and commitment that is inherent in these guys is dangerous in these situations. It's asking too much of them (although they are willing to give). Thoughts?
Pretty much my sentiments from several posts ago.

Make no mistake -- those guys were nothing less of heroic for risking their lives to help another team in distress. But it's quite possible that some of those hurt are folks who rushed in headlong without the necessary skills & equipment to deal with the emergency, and only ended up getting hurt for being in over their heads.
