If your neighbor’s house is burning, you’re not gonna spend a whole lot of time saying "Well, that guy was always irresponsible. He always left the stove on. He always was smoking in bed." All those things may be true, but his house could end up affecting your house.
We’ve got to make sure that we put the fire out and then go start making sure that these folks stop leaving the stove on.
