Irony in Real Life

CRChair and I had a chat about this yesterday, and I thought it was worth a small post. Amidst the California wildfires, no one has really mentioned that October is Fire Prevention Awareness Month. It is a great irony that the two have coincided. Fire Protection Awareness Month was originally tied to the Great Chicago Fire of 1871.

It is a reminder to all of us that Fire is not just something for the fireplace, but a real danger to be watchful for every day. Have you checked your smoke alarms yet, and/or replaced their batteries?

It's especially ironic in light of the fact that at least two of the fires have been confirmed as arson.
