Not Boeing's fault for lack of Asiana's crew training. And remember how they and Airbus were rushing between the B787 Dreamliner and the Airbus A380. Boeing kept holding back on release, even though it cost them sales! And the burning of the top of the aircraft, this happened AFTER the evacuation and all the oxygen lines run there.

I don't think there are any oxygen lines except in the cockpit. Oxygen generators are used in the cabin. They start to operate when the masks are pulled down. They do generate a bit of heat, but I don't think they would start a fire since they are used ocaissionally. They did bring down that Air Trans (not sure of the name) A/C a few years back, but that was because they were in a box in the bag pit and hadn't been discharged like they should have been. I believe they caught a tire on fire and it escalated from there.
