who has emphysema, and is on oxygen, should be smoking at all!

ATHOL, Mass. (AP) A retired reporter, who suffered from emphysema, died
after igniting an oxygen line in her home while lighting a cigarette, fire
officials said.

burning home on Sunday by two police officers, said Athol Fire Chief James
She had worked for the Athol Daily News for 35 years from the 1940s into the
Wright said Xxxxx, who shared the home with relatives but had been home
alone at the time, was found on a sofa in a back bedroom. The oxygen tubing
she ignited was attached to a machine several rooms away. However, the blaze

mother-in-law had suffered from emphysema for the past seven years, and used
an oxygen tank.
