Another good reminder - sometimes we need a visual to understand just how important something can be.

Ironic that we posted a story similar to this about a year ago, and now we have a LOCAL example of why it's so important to sleep with your bedroom door closed.

Burton firefighters were called to a fire on February 15th and recently gave the department permission to share the pictures on social media to spread awareness about the importance of sleeping with your bedroom door closed.

On February 15, 2020 the City of Burton Fire Department responded to a fire in a home. Everyone in the home was able to safely evacuate but one of the things about this fire that stood out was that one of the bedroom doors was closed. The family gave us permission to share these photos to show the safety benefits of sleeping with your bedroom door closed. Had anyone been in this bedroom it would have been very survivable.
