Deerfield kitchen fire contained due to hard-wired smoke alarms

The hard-wired smoke alarm sent an alert directly to emergency responders

DEERFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – Here’s a local reminder of how a hard-wired monitored smoke detector system can save lives.

Just after noon Saturday, the Deerfield Fire Department was called to Juniper Drive. The police got there first and saw smoke coming from the home.

Someone left food cooking on the stove, but thanks to that alarm system, firefighters were able to get the smoke out of the home and the police were able to rescue the dogs that were trapped inside.

The hard-wired monitored smoke alarm sent the alert directly to emergency responders, who were able to control the situation before it got worse.
