Sadly, a deadly house fire in Plymouth serves as a reminder of the importance of smoke detectors.
Sunday morning a young man died of smoke inhalation.
Firefighters say there were no smoke detectors found in the house.
Investigators believe if smoke alarms had been installed, everyone would have made it out alive.
At the Clay Fire Department, firefighters are gearing up for October's Fire Safety Month.
Typically any local department will hand out a free smoke alarms to those in need.
In some cases, they will also help you install them around your house.
Keep in mind, they are only good for ten years and they cost anywhere from five to twenty-five bucks.
Clay Fire Territory Dave Cherrone says they are very affordable. “Still to think in this day in age when they've been around since the early 60s and the price is down to where during the month of October you'll pay more for a bottle of pop.”
Cherrone says a few things to keep in mind to maintain your detector including changing the batteries, testing it twice a year, and dusting it three times a year.
