How right I was, when I wrote that headline.
Terrible news yesterday. There was a brutal one man attack on Kyoto Anime Studios. It left more than thirty people dead. A man in his forties doused the entrance of the studio with an accelerant and set fire to it.
The studio, was three stories tall and had no fire escapes. What did have was an open spiral staircase that funneled smoke up to the third floor. That is where most of the people died.
Don’t US fire codes for granted.
