Newly installed smoke detector helps save Belleville resident
The fire department said that earlier a suspicious fire was found smoldering on a rug draped over an exterior door. Firefighters discovered the house had no working smoke detectors, and they installed one before leaving.
Approximately three hours later, a second fire occurred at the home.
When firefighters arrived, the first floor was blocked by heavy fire and they rescued a woman out of a second-floor window.
