Hmm, Help Prevent Government Fires

A week ago, there was a fire in the Evidence Building of the Ministry of the Interior in Cairo, the Ministry that ran both the police and State Security, and just yesterday there was another fire, this one at the Central Auditing Organization, which has been investigating illicit accounts and other issues involving the wealth of the Mubaraks and the key allies of the old regime.

I'm sure people are just being careless with matches, but really, when people are trying to document abuses and corruption, I hope the Cairo fire brigades are on their toes.
