Photoelectric Smoke Alarms Save Family While Ionization Alarm Stays Silent

From Chagrin Falls, Ohio Fire Department:

“Two people…scratch that, the wife was pregnant….three Chagrin Valley residents are alive this morning thanks to 11216817_10205052946830990_2610692760585254467_n (1)Photoelectric Smoke Alarms. They had three alarms, a Photoelectric on the first floor, Photoelectric in the basement, and Ionization on the second floor outside the bedrooms. Both Photoelectric Smoke Alarms Activated and the homeowner said he heard the first floor alarm, woke up his wife and they escaped the fire. The Ionization never went off, it was in the second floor hall, smoke rises. Very thankful they had Photoelectric elsewhere to warn them. Sadly they did lose a cat but we’re happy they made it out.”
