After Deadly California Fire Thousands of Smoke Alarms Installed

February 23, 2015

Volunteers have installed thousands of free smoke alarms in a Southern California neighborhood where a fire last month killed a mother and her two sons.

The Orange County Register reported 5,000 donated smoke alarms were installed Saturday in 1,000 condominiums in San Juan Capistrano. They were donated by the Kidde fire safety products firm.

Authorities say there were no working smoke alarms in a condominium that caught fire on Jan. 20. Nine children and eight adults were living in the home.

The fire killed a woman, her 2-year-old son and his 3-year-old brother, injured others and displaced dozens of people from surrounding units.
