You have a home, and spread out one at that and smoke detectors make
more sense there than in more compact houses, FWIW. But truth be told,
they suck and in Jewish homes particularly, where you have a lot of
shabbos food on the Blech, and food cooking for large families, they get
turned off after the 10th time they go off in a week.. If they were
designed better, they would be more useful. But they only have a
marginal affect anyway. There is no guarantee in a fire, nor can you
expect to end fires. You need escape routes, fire extinguishers, to not
block exists and entrances, and emergency plan, especially when you
sleep upstairs. Smoke alarms are a lot more likely to be helpful then.
Here you had thee children over 10 years old who died. It is
speculation to asume the alarm would have helped much.
