A Mothers narrative of her experience of a fire in her house. She speaks of the devastation that it caused and how it could possibly have been avoided had she had smoke detectors in place. In the video, a representative from the local fire and rescue service speaks about the severity of the fire and the potential consequences of not having a working smoke alarm in your home.
