Close the door

There was a catastrophic fire in the Bronx today:

Commissioner [Daniel A.] Nigro said the door to the apartment where the fire started was left open, which helped fuel the fire and allowed the smoke to spread. “We’ve spread the word, ‘close the door, close the door,’” to keep a fire contained, he said.
“Close the door” is the theme of a famed PSA created by the sound recordist Tony Schwartz.

Everyone should hear this message. Please pass it on.

[I learned about this PSA in 2017, not long before another fire in the Bronx.]
