  1. Who was michalel shabbos by reporting it? You’re supposed to let it burn and burn. It’s only possessions, right? Am I wrong on this?

  2. To #2- This IS safeik pikuach nefesh- There could always be someone sleeping anywhere in the building at that time- so one is obligated to call.

  3. You do realize it could’ve burnt the entire floor, then the building, and then the beis medrash, right? It is definitely 100% Sakanas Nefashos.

  4. Yes, you are wrong. A fire in a dorm is a clear threat to life and should be reported. In any event, BMG is equipped with fire alarms which automatically notify the fire department as well as a 24/7 non-Jewish maintenance staff.

  5. yes shmuel, you are right. and then when it spreads and someone gets trapped in a room and dies you’re just supposed to let it burn

  6. u ppl all are foolsih ask all these questions thinking u actually know things when its just amharaatzus. btw not one of you asked if anyone got hurt! its all about the hock.
