Residents of an Ohio community are grieving the loss of a mother and her three children in a fire this week. Fire officials say that Ashley Mays and her children–a five-year-old and 11-month-old twins–died in the Wednesday morning blaze in their South Point mobile home. The twins were to celebrate their first birthday in a couple of weeks. According to WYMT-TV, Ashley’s sister, Breanna Brown, said the home had no smoke alarms.

Having a working smoke alarm cuts the chances of dying in a reported home fire in half. The smoke alarm page on the NFPA website and safety tips sheets, available in English and Spanish, provide what you need to know about smoke alarms and smoke alarm safety messaging.
