Amazon Alexa Saves Family Of Six In Maryland, Alerts Them To House Fire

According to the Fire Department of Silver Spring, “Just before 2 am, a Silver Spring family was told not to smoke in their residence by Alexa.”

A family of six was able to escape a house fire thanks to Amazon’s Alexa speaking service, which alerted them to the presence of smoke. They were able to safely evacuate the area thanks to the timely notice. An alert from Amazon’s virtual assistant was what ultimately led to the rescue of four adults and two children who were trapped inside of a burning home in Montgomery County, Maryland, on Monday. The statement was issued by Montgomery County Fire and Rescue.
According to DC News Now, Alexa was the one that roused the household at around two in the morning. After waking up to the smell of smoke, the family was able to safely flee the house thanks to Alexa and the smoke alarms that were working properly in the home.

According to the Fire Department of Silver Spring, “Just before 2 am, a Silver Spring family was told not to smoke in their residence by Alexa.”

Pete Piringer, a spokesperson for Montgomery County, was recently quoted saying the following on Wjla.com: “The family followed the smell of smoke to the adjacent garage, but as soon as they opened the door, they were forced to flee because the temperature inside was so high and there was so much smoke. Thankfully, nobody was wounded in the accident. In addition to that, there were operational smoke alarms installed throughout around the property.”

It was revealed that two distinct electrical chargers were plugged in and were running two different electric items, including an electric bike and an electric lawnmower, according to what Piringer reported to the media source.

According to the officials, the cause of the incident was that a heat source was located in a location where it was too close to the combustible items. It was estimated that there would be about 175,000 dollars worth of damage.
