Glockerman, True however most of those deaths are residential fires where the occupants are sleeping and never wake due to carbon monoxide poisoning. The other fire deaths for the most part are in public buildings with inadequate egress for the number of people within the building and have large fires that developed rapidly.

The first group can only be saved by using alarms and or sprinkler systems so they can escape.

The second group always has unusual circumstances contributing to large fires and blocked exits. In the case of the hotel fires more sleeping people. If you manage to get one of these over your head, you would still need to negotiate the other people in the building without being crushed at the doors. Then find an alternative exit having no visibility while avoiding the heat of the fire. I’m just saying don’t expect it to do miracles.
