I just read an article on the internet about Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne. Sharon left a candle burning in a glass vase, something that Ozzie told the Beverly Hills Fire department  that she has been doing for 32 years. Around  5 am  Sharon says she heard a sound, and she thought the housekeeper had come in, and dropped her keys, so she let it go. Minutes later, she couldn’t breathe, and smelled smoke. Ozzie, who has had hand surgery earlier that day, went downstairs only to find that their living room was on fire. He tried to put out the flames with his hand (in was in a cast), then opened a door. Sharon ran to the kitchen, grabbed some water, and threw it on the oily flames. It only spread the fire, and singed Ozzy’s hair and eyebrows. After getting a scolding from the Fire department  she apologized to her husband, and promised never to leave another candle burning in their home, ever. The reason that I am posting this on my blog is to ask that if you burn candles at night, please don’t do it. The Osbourne’s learned that lesson the hard way. I am glad that they were not seriously hurt, and came out of it okay. Lesson learned.
