Since being involved in a fire injury and death case where there was not a working smoke detector I have learned a lot. Now every time I see a fire I look to see what they say about the smoke detector. Unfortunately the newspapers are not always right. But again it was reported that "Fire detectors weren't sounding on the building's second floor" according to residents, in a Cincinnati Mt Washington apartment complex and a life was taken. They attribute even more injuries if a hero, Owen Brooks would not have knocked on the doors arousing people.
