    It is my understanding that the problem started in the break assembly system. It caught fire, something my SIL says is not that abnormal. The presence of oxygen tanks added to the problem, a long with the material buses are made from, aluminum, along with the age and infirmities. I am sorry about the number of deaths but not surprised.

    My dd#2 worked with those patients in Houston. She is very saddened by their deaths.
