This paper examines how, in the United States, the accidental affliction of death caused by fires and burns occupies the fourth place. It attempts to show how smoke alarms are the chiefly efficient, initial cautioning device existing for the home and how they give precious time to run away from a fire. Generally, fires can propagate quickly through a home, and people may have as little as two minutes to run away following the alarm sounds. The possibility of dying in a housing fire is reduced to half when a functioning smoke alarm is available.
