According to Van Zandt County Fire Marshal Chuck Allen, at about 3 a.m. firefighters were called to a fire at an oil storage facility north of Van along state Highway 110.

Stupid is as stupid does. Smoking near combustible materials?

doggod: Two potential nominees for next year's Darwin Awards.

They survived and can reproduced. As such, they're not qualified for the Darwin Award, but maybe they can get honorable mention.

"Hey, what say we stop here on top of this oil storage tank and light up some cigarettes?"

"Sounds good to me. Can't think of a better place to light a fire than on top of a huge quantity of highly flammable liquids."

Smokers.........always the problem.

You have to be really stupid to smoke in these highly volatile areas, I also see people smoke by gas stations!

But they should not be employed in the first place, knowing that smokers have urge to smoke, you can just hire non-smokers.

But that of course is discrimination.

Hey, let's nominate them for the first Darwin Award of the year. These smokers should DEFINITELY be taken out of the gene pool.

We are praying for those killed or hurt in the terrible Brazilian club fire.

"...the victims were believed to be trespassing and smoking on a catwalk above the storage tanks."
