    FURY OF THE FIRE IS UNCONTAINABLE AND EXTREMELY FAST AND AGILE...
    PREVENTION IS BETTER THAN FIGHTING THE FIRE...
    MOST WORK PLACES NEGLECT FIRE SAFETY RULES...
    SIMPLE ERRORS OFTEN CAUSE DISASTERS...
    NEVER IGNORE THE HAZARDS...
    STUB THEM OUT AT THE BUDDING STAGE ITSELF...
    THANK GOD NO HUMAN CASUALTIES...
