    I believe if you don’t have anything nice to say..don’t say anything. I’m glad there is nothing more to report. It’s an important reminder that smoke detectors saves lives. You can take what you want out of any situation/story..but it’s always better to find the good!! Barberton is awesome. Be kind to EVERYONE!! Have a great day!!!

      Pretty sure this is called new isn’t it? Also focuses on the positive effect smoke detectors have. Don’t be a troll.

      And they got the number of people inside wrong. There was also an infant and 2 or 3 children.
