The fire is on par with burning a stick of incense in a temple or lighting a candle for someone in a church - yes, there is smoke and ash created, but it is being done for a greater purpose and will be cleaned up properly.
Plus, I'm a pyro and so IMO any intentional and contained fire is a good fire ;-).
Warm clothes, chair, bottle of champagne, plastic glass.
Did I forget anything?

Many of my favorite folks, including my Sis, are perennial pyros!!
