They may not have realized it. I don't know whether the signage Ariadne testified to warned of fumes, or for that matter of collapse.

And even if the signs mentioned fumes, they may not have realized the extent of the danger. Many people have never heard much about it -- my own education on the subject mostly dates to having run into this story; and I'd been living in farm country quite a few years before then. So I now tend to make loud noises about it when the subject comes up.
