    So glad this fire was only minor. So many of them are started at the stove, and so many are preventable. Stove Stopper is the best method of safety and prevention. Do this for yourself, your home, and your loved ones.

    Tell me how does a young person just having a licence maybe a little over a year already owe that much in tickets.In my forty years driving I maybe got a total of $300.00 or so.Something wrong with our system.I guess he may have never had a licence.
