In case of fire, shout “newspaper, newspaper”

2002: Fire engulfs the Ananda Bazaar Patrika office in Calcutta.

2005: Fire engulfs the Deccan Herald office in Bombay.

2006: Fire engulfs The Statesman office in Calcutta.

2007: Fire engulfs the Hindustan Times office in Delhi.

Are newspaper groups, always quick on the draw in offering advice on how to make the world a better place to live in, plain careless in conforming to fire safety standards? Or is there something more than meets the eye, given the regularity with which fire seem to blazer through newspaper offices in India?
