Smoke Detectors have once again been credited with alerting the occupants of a fire in their basement yesterday afternoon. The sound of the detector alerted the resident of 41 Drummers La and upon checking the basement found smoke. The Bethel & Stony Hill Volunteer Fire Departments responded and quickly extinguished the clothes dryer that was on fire.
There was some minor water and smoke damage to the home.
It is important for residents to be sure they have working smoke detectors in their home. A fire can occur at anytime and being alerted quickly to the fire can save lives and property
Also- major appliances should not be operated when not at home such as dryers, washing machines, or dishwashers. Proper installation, maintenance and upkeep of the appliances is important as well.
Let’s continue to keep Bethel Fire Safe, and check your smoke detectors today!
