Milton, Georgia – The city of Milton Georgia is now giving their moral support to a local family after a mother and her toddler were forced to jump out a second floor window to escape their burning home. The family is now homeless after their home was engulfed in flames and smoke on November 22nd.

Their White Columns neighborhood home in Milton was completely destroyed in the fire which started just before 7:00 am.

The parents and seven children were getting ready for the day when they noticed the flames. The mother ran upstairs to grab the family’s little toddler and was trapped when smoke became too thick to escape.

As a result the mother said that she was forced to jump from a second floor window with her child. Both were taken to Grady hospital for burns and injuries from the fall.

The house was a total loss from the fire and water damage.

It is unfortunate that the family did not have smoke detectors that were monitored through a security system. If they would have had a security system with monitored smoke/heat detectors the local fire department would have been notified in just seconds after the first evidence of smoke was detected. The family would also have been notified of a problem much quicker and the house would have been saved.

Remember, one of the main reasons to install a security system is to have fire protection through an ADT monitored smoke/heat detector. Even when the system is not armed and even when you are away from your home the smoke detector systems are always working for you.

According to fire department spokesman 64% of all house fires occur during the daytime when we are away at school or at work. Also, fully 50% of all of the cheap non-monitored smoke detectors that builders place in homes don’t work in the event of a fire.
