Havasu Scanner Feed Member Chris Leonard suggests “often the residents of a home do not know a fire is in their garage until someone knocks on their door.” – Chris suggests making a small investment and installing a smoke alarm in your garage. With the number of garage fires we’ve reported on lately, we tend to agree. Early detection could allow the opportunity to extinguish the fire, or at minimum give better notice to exiting the residence.
Thanks Chris for taking the time to write!
