    This brings me images of stuff that I've seen in movies with the robes catching on fire. Good God, what a horrible way to die (or get injured severely)!! I don't know if there's a good way to make these more flame retardant or not, since they are usually so large and heavy. But it is certainly interesting that the horror stories happened so often with that particular Blair brand.

    it crazy how many people burn up in these things. Hopefully, they will not only recall them , but treat them with something so this doesn't happen any more. Thanks for taking the time to read and comment.
