    Patient in oxygen mask smokes, starts fire

    Officials not sure how he lit cigarette with non-removable mask

    DALLAS - A patient who was wearing an oxygen mask tried to light a cigarette in his hospital room, sparking a fire that forced the evacuation of more than 100 patients, destroyed the room and melted medical equipment, officials said.

    A nurse at Methodist Dallas Medical Center rescued the man from his burning bed shortly after the Thursday night blaze started. He suffered serious burns and was taken to the burn unit another Dallas hospital, but no one else was hurt, hospital officials said.

    "He somehow got the strength to smoke a cigarette with a nonremovable mask," Dallas Fire-Rescue Capt. Paul Martinez said. "I don't know how he did it, but he did it."

    Hospital sprinklers kept the blaze mostly in one room, said fire Lt. Joel Lavender.

    Officials didn't release the man's name or condition Friday, citing medical privacy laws.

    Now that is dedication to your addiction, as well as a commitment to stupidity.

    He could have been a candidate for the 2006 Darwin Awards. Damn sprinkler systems screwed that up.
