“We’re here at my nephew’s wedding. Next thing I know is we’re being evacuated,” Janice Lira said.

As a nurse, Lira has attended to a few emergencies, but she never expected it at her nephew’s wedding.

“I was trying to help my parents, who are in their 80s, down the stairs. I mean that was scary. I'm glad that it was at least on the second floor,” Lira said.

Officials said a heating box started the fire. Lira’s family said they were upstairs having dinner when the lights went off. The sprinklers then went off and they evacuated the building.

Firefighters said the sprinklers put out the fire, and two people were taken to the hospital with minor injuries. No one was seriously hurt.

3 Cleveland fashion businesses blurring the gender standards

Adam King, a graduate of Moore College of Art and Design's fashion program and a longtime clothing designer, never felt limited by style. Until he had his first son. Rack after rack, he recalls, touted skulls and crossbones for boys and rhinestones and glitter for girls.

"As someone who's worked in the fashion industry for my entire adult life, the aesthetic didn't sit well with me," he says. As a designer inspired by minimalist style, he craves versatility. As a parent, he craves the longevity of being able to pass clothes down from child to child – no matter their gender.

In 2014, he took thread and needle into his own hands and launched his children's clothing line, Mooi Kind ("beautiful child" in Dutch). Pieces are made with functionality and style in mind rather than gender, and they've become in-demand internationally. They're sold globally online, and locally at events like the Cleveland Flea.

King is one of the many emerging designers making clothes that aren't defined by gender. Of course, celebrities and runway designers have been blurring the lines for decades. But today, the division in fashion – and marketing in general – has come to the forefront. It was abundantly clear following Ohio parent Abi Bechtel's June 2015 tweet to Target heard around the world. The message was simple: A photo of an aisle reading "Building sets" and under it, "Girls' building sets." In the viral tweet, Bechtel plainly stated, "Don't do this, @Target."

or King, the choice was one that was economical and sustainable. He noticed when it came to clothing swaps between parents, everything was listed by gender.

"I don't want the shelf life of something to end when my child has outgrown it,'" says King. "If I had a daughter next, I wanted her to be able to wear the same things my son wore."

The demand has been so high, in fact, that King is reviewing offers to have his clothes stocked in stores and on websites across the country. He'll be moving into mass production due to the requests. He also plans to partner with artists on a line of children's books based on characters wearing the clothes.

King's leggings and headbands may sell out in 15 minutes whenever he's at a market, but that doesn't mean his black t-shirts with bold white print that reads "Clothes have no gender" don't raise a few eyebrows.

"Some people gristle at that, and seeing the resistance to the idea of what I'm doing can be a little challenging," says King. "If people want to have a conversation about it, I absolutely can. I'm not trying to making a statement about buying something gender neutral. The 'statement' is having clothes that their kids like."

The second full season of Counting On was to feature Jinger Duggar’s courtship and engagement. Since short engagements have been a Duggar standard, viewers have been expecting the announcement of a wedding date any moment. However, this announcement has not been forthcoming.

There’s no question that Jinger and her beau, Jeremy Vuolo, have been the focus of this season of Counting On. However, the engagement that fans were waiting for took its time coming. Though Jeremy announced the engagement with a blog post in July, saying that Jinger Duggar had accepted his proposal, before the first episode of the season aired in August, fans who sat down expecting to see a proposal would have a while to wait.

Instead, the first seven episodes of Counting On‘s second season would slowly lead up to the proposal in Episode 8. Jeremy and Jinger were shown talking about courtship rules (engagement rules are different), spending time together, and breaking some of the rules that Duggar fans have come to expect as a standard.

Social media posts as well as video clips hinted that Jinger was hugging Jeremy a little more front-huggy than the Duggar rules had previously required, that she was perhaps slightly less chaperoned for online chats than her sisters, who spoke of Jim Bob Duggar listening to their phone calls, and that Jinger would even be changing up the Duggar wedding scene — getting married in Jeremy’s hometown of Laredo, Texas, rather than back home in Arkansas.

In short, the season was a long lead-up to the proposal (enough so that fans complained about recaps and flashbacks), the moment fans were excited about, peppered with promises that fans who watched the previous three wedding specials — Josh and Anna, Jessa and Ben, and Jill and Derick — couldn’t just replay those and mentally photoshop in Jinger and Jeremy’s faces. Jinger Duggar is different, viewers were subtly told, and her wedding will be different, special, and memorable. Of course, every wedding is different, special, and memorable to the participants, but not every wedding is enough so to earn a television special.

Essentially, Season 2 promised that Jinger’s wedding won’t be just another Duggar wedding, but that it will be one worthy of its own special episode. Obviously, that episode isn’t to be aired this season. However, if Jinger hopes to have all of her siblings attend her wedding, it will have to take place before Jill returns to Central America, at some undisclosed time “in the fall.”

A short engagement isn’t apt to be a stumbling block for the Duggar family — according to Us Weekly, Jill and Derick were engaged for less than three months before their wedding. Jessa’s engagement was about the same length — E! reports that she and Ben announced their engagement in mid-August, 2014. Their wedding was November 1.

If that pattern held, Jinger Duggar’s wedding would be in October — so a wedding before the end of Fall isn’t out of the question at all.
