Menorah May Have Sparked Deadly Fire


The deadly blaze that claimed the lives of Aliza Azan and three of her children may have been sparked by a menorah, fire investigators suggest.

“This may be the source of the fire because it was in the room on the first floor where the fire was predominately contained,” the law enforcement source said. Read more at NY POST.



  1. How are they so sure it was the menorah? Were they informed that the family lit the candles about 12:00 at night or is it just the easiest to blame?

  2. Investigators “suggest”
    This “may” be the source.
    In other words, they have no idea what they’re talking about. Don’t spread lies.

  3. Whether or not it was the Menora, this tragedy is a reminder that one cannot
    be careful enough with a lit fire and one most certainly should not leave
    a lit Menora unwatched especially when there are children around.
    I know people who keep a container or glass of water near their Menora when they light
    -sounds like a good idea.
