    Gotta agree. One wonders if this was the first time they did this, or they were lucky previously.

    No Kitchen Exhaust fan or Rangehood in Kitchen at all? I can't believe it. Its look like suicide pact because they closed all windows when they are using Charcoal fire. Why Ranghood and exhaust fan do not operate at that time?
