    Quick.
    Put a old fire blanket down.

    Or get some stones tiles, back them with rubber and stand on them and weld.

    PS Is "The Pub" still there on Archbishops street?

    or these..1 sq meter of 25mm thick rubber mats (recycled car tires)..we use them on roofs and they work out about £35 each but are fantastic for many uses

    carpet works ok, does not seem to catch fire, throw it away when too dirty, put another bit down, if you have carpet in Malta?

    Plenty of marble tiles on Malta, keep the place cool to. Best takeaway is the Hamrun kiosk in Malta...........
