A picture is worth a thousand words and this image illustrates, in the words of a London Fire Brigade officer, ``how important it is to ensure your cigarette is completely out when you've finished smoking it.''

On June 22, 2018, flames broke out at the historic Somers Town Coffee House, a popular pub near the 
Euston, St Pancras and King's Cross rail stations, while customers were watching the World Cup match between Serbia and Switzerland. 

Everyone evacuated safely but half of the roof and and second floor of the pub, which 
dates back to 18th century, sustained damage.
