Royal fire death: eighteen fire fighters were mobilised near Saint Etienne France on 9th August to deal with an apartment fire. One resident was hospitalised because of smoke. The fire however caused one death, that of a Royal Python, in whose terrarium the fire apparently started. It could not be established from the defunct reptile whether it was responsible for starting the fire. The fire service stated that its fire fighters are trained to deal with animals, but that in this case the inanimate python had not impacted their intervention.
