The statistics are alarming. Each year across the U.S., more than 4,000 Americans die and 20,000 are injured in fires. Almost two-thirds of home fire deaths result from fires where there are no smoke alarms or nonworking smoke alarms. Most home fires occur when families are asleep. And, fires are fast – in less than 30 seconds, a small flame can get completely out of control and turn into a major fire.
