"Whitney conceded that the cell phone was a possible cause of the fire,
but said he didn't believe it would have ignited the condo fire if it were under Lopez's pillow,
as a lack of oxygen would have smothered the blaze and kept it from spreading.
"Sutterley said the burns Lopez sustained on his back, arms and particularly his hand
were more consistent with holding a lit cigarette, rather than a cell phone igniting beneath his pillow,
which Sutterley argued should have caused burns to Lopez's head".
Things I never knew - I think I better go read 921 again...
