'No evidence' alarms worked in burnt home
The death of another child raises to five the number who died in the Hamilton fire.
By Canadian Press, Mon., March 3, 2008
Hamilton -- As the death toll following a devastating blaze inside a single family west Hamilton home early Saturday climbed to five, new information has surfaced that suggests the human tragedy may have been averted had there been working smoke detectors inside.
A day after the blaze that claimed the lives of a 22-year-old mother, her three young daughters and a 19-year-old male resident, fire investigators say they've found "no evidence" to show there were functioning fire alarms or smoke detectors inside.
Noting this is the fourth fatal fire in Ontario this weekend alone and that eight people have died, Pierre YELLE of the Ontario Fire Marshal's Office said it's time people get the hint.
"The Ontario Fire Marshal's Office urges everyone to have smoke alarms properly installed inside their homes and ensure they are in proper working order," he said.
"Smoke alarms are obviously very valuable because they create an opportunity for you to escape."
YELLE said families also need to devise an escape plan so they know what to do in the event of a fire emergency.
Investigators have identified the victims of Saturday's blaze as 22-year-old Melissa DENHOLLANDER and her daughters Emma DENHOLLANDER- HANIGAN, 4, Ella, 2, and Alana, 1.
YELLE said Ella had been evacuated and placed on life support in hospital immediately after the blaze but later succumbed to her injuries.
The body of a 19-year-old male, whose name is being withheld pending notification of next of kin, was discovered in the living room after firefighters brought the blaze under control.
DENHOLLANDER's 28-year-old boyfriend, Richard GRIFFIN, remains at the Hamilton General where he's recovering from burns and smoke inhalation, while a 20-year-old female has been released from hospital after treatment.
YELLE said investigators are still trying to determine the origin, cause and circumstances of the blaze.
