Area Fires Stress Importance of Smoke Detectors

In light of the recent fires we’ve had in our area, which are more prone to happen in winter time, having a functional smoke detector can often mean life or death. The fire in New London Sunday night on Squires Lane gave us a chance to speak with New London Fire Chief Jay Lyon on Monday about the importance of smoke detectors in your home.

There were no injuries in Sunday’s fire, thanks to the functional smoke detector in the home at the time of the fire, as Chief Lyon explained.

Smoke detectors cost anywhere from between $10 to $100, but no cost is too much when it comes to fire safety.
