Indeed. EVERYBODY used to smoke. While it was officially verboten, you know people smoked in bed. Sterno was used all the time. Prior to about 1971, the galley used open flames to cook.

Though I now live in a brick home, for years we lived in a frame house with a big wooden deck on the back. I never thought twice about firing up the BBQ grill, 10 feet from the back door, even in the fall with leaves blowing around. There's careful, and there's ridiculous.
