    Loon, we change the batteries every fall, the smoke detectors are also hardwired so the battery is just the backup. Nice load of wood, tough situation.

    I'm glad he's OK. But really what the heck was he thinking? Been hearing this way too much lately.

    These stories and the ones about generators run indoors every year distress me the most. So unnecessary and so many people lose their homes or worse.

    Talked to the fella today and he said after 50 years of burning he just got complacent that night :blank:

    Sure hope it doesn't happen to anyone here on the board...

    +1 . . . One of the reasons why despite fire codes and fire safety education there will always be a need for the local fire department . . . sad to say. On the flip side . . . while the guy got complacent with the hot ashes at least he wasn't complacent when it came to making sure the smoke detector(s) worked.
