  A nite of love sets fatal fire
L.A. Daily News - Latest News from the Associated Press: "PARIS (AP) -- A night watchman's girlfriend who placed candles on the floor to set the scene for a romantic tryst but then left in a rage over his drunken state may have accidentally caused last week's hotel fire that killed 24 people, prosecutors said Tuesday.

The woman, who was detained Monday, told police she placed a dozen burning candles on the floor of the breakfast room of the Paris Opera hotel, then threw piles of clothes on the floor and left after she became angry that her boyfriend was drunk.

The prosecutors' office announced it was opening an investigation for 'fire caused involuntarily, manslaughter and involuntary injuries.' The woman, identified only as 31-year-old Fatima, was placed under investigation - a step short of being charged - Tuesday evening, judicial officials said. She was in custody."
