How to use inferno in a sentence?

  1. Karim Hijazi:

    The fact that were seeing something as old as Ramnit show up in WHOs network is a really bad sign. This trojans activity that weve been tracking as it beacons back to the attackers network is just the smoke of what is probably a much bigger fire going on inside their network, it could be a raging inferno on the inside. If something as ancient as Ramnit can get through their defenses, they have much bigger problems. It means newer malware probably doesnt have much trouble slipping in too.

  2. Firefighter Isamu Kase:

  3. Michael Doherty:

    More than 40 tourists and crew members plunged into the waters of Ha Long Bay on Friday to escape the growing inferno on the docked wooden Aphrodite Cruise ship, the New Zealand Herald reported. The crew did their best but they were all very young and obviously overwhelmed by the circumstances, the passengers were guided to the sun deck of the ship and thereafter given no direction or support. It definitely felt as if it was just chaos.

  4. Nicholas Alahverdian:

    I had other problems — I dressed nicely. I used words that were not monosyllabic. I aspired to go to Harvard University or Yale. The DCYF receptionist and the security guard would nod and smile at the narrative for my future. The social workers would counsel me to dress with baggy jeans and speak like a child so as to not elicit beatings by the other kids.” Excerpt From: Nicholas Alahverdian. “Ignoble Inferno/ The Nicholas Alahverdian Lawsuit.” iBooks.
