Just because the story will go to archieves and become "unobtainable"

A misplaced candle is believed to have started a fire that caused about $100,000 damage to a bondage and discipline parlour in inner Melbourne.
Metropolitan Fire Brigade crews were called to The Correction Centre in St David Street, Fitzroy, just after 10.15pm and contained the fire to a room on the second floor of the two-storey building.
An MFB spokesman said 18 firefighters "were tied up for some time but disciplined and controlled firefighting contained the blaze to one room on the second floor".
The establishment's staff and any clients had evacuated by the time MFB units arrived. No one was injured but much of the upper level was damaged by heat and smoke.
Fitzroy resident Gita Chetty, 23, said she saw smoke coming from the building and two women leave the bondage club.
"I saw two women who came out of the centre at the time of the fire - one looked like a receptionist wearing a red silky top and a black skirt and the other woman was wearing a long black jacket and she was wearing lots of make up," she said.
Ms Chetty, who lives nearby, said: "It's pretty low key, although I have noticed the regulars who come by."
The spokesman said a lighted candle was thought to be the cause of the fire.
The fire was under control in about 30 minutes, Acting Commander Ala McLean told radio station 3AW.
"It was fairly quickly controlled. It was a small fire. Once they gained access into the first floor area it was reasonably quickly extinguished," Mr McLean said.
