Close before You Doze

The pace at which a fire spreads has increased dramatically. About 40 years ago, people had an average of 17 minutes to escape a burning home after the activation of a smoke alarm. Today, that window is about three minutes or less due to open floor plans and synthetic furnishings and building materials.
