Hear the BEEP where you SLEEP. Half of home fire deaths result from fires reported at night between 11 p.m. and 7 a.m. when most people are asleep. Smoke alarms can alert people to a fire before it spreads, giving everyone enough time to get out safely. It is important to have working smoke alarms in every bedroom, outside each sleeping area, and on every level of the home, including the basement. Learn more...
An early morning house fire on the 2200 block of Babette in South Sacramento has left two children dead and one firefighter injured. Crews arriving found heavy fire and smoke from the door and multiple windows of the home, and family members outside stating two children were still in the upstairs bedroom. Extreme heat conditions made fire attack difficult, and the interior stairs were burned through, limiting access to the second floor by exterior ladders only. A six year old boy and eleven year old girl perished in the fire, and one firefighter from Engine 16 is being evaluated for first and second degree burns to the ears and neck. It is unknown if the home had a working smoke detector. Read Post

The events described in this video are emotionally charged, and strong language is used in several places. Read Post
