Pushpin house fire. please read


Around 5:00 a.m Wednesday morning I get a phone call from my sister telling me that she had just lost everything in a house fire!
My sister, her adult daughter, and her 2 grand babies live in a mobile home. Wed night nobody could sleep for whatever reason my niece and her 11 yr old son slept in the living room. They NEVER do this. Her son has the back bedroom. The fire started in the hallway right in front of the door to the back bedroom! It was caused by a faulty extension cord. Smoke detectors woke them all up and they all got out safe, even the cat!
The reason I'm telling everyone about this is I want my WUC family to know the importance of having working smoke detectors. Smoke detectors saved my sister and her family. Please if you don't have them get them. Some fire departments even give them away to people that can't afford them.

I agree - we had a small fire last weekend - we were able to put it out but it would have been worse without the smoke detectors going off.

I am so sorry they lost everything - my prayers are with them.

And carbon monoxide detectors! There was an incident here last month and a couple was hospitalized due to a faulty hot water heater.

How scary for them! I am so glad to hear everyone made it out okay!

Thank you for the reminder about smoke detectors....and carbon monoxide detectors too!

Having suffered a devastating house fire, I know the importance of smoke detectors. Please everyone, get them. Give them yourself and to others as Christmas gifts. So worth it.
I am so happy that no one was hurt and all got out okay.

Your family is in my prayers. I have lived through a house fire and it was very devastating.

Glad everyone got out in time. It does not take long for a fire to spread in a mobile home. One of my coworkers is a volunteer fireperson and she says that you have about 5 minutes to get out of a fire in one.
