This past Sunday I had a electrical issue at my house and I was out in my garage when my wife came out and said something smells weird . I came in walked down the hall towards the bedrooms following the smell. I opened our bedroom door to find smoke. We pulled the bed away from the wall to find the plug in strip melting away and about to catch on fire. As I tended to this I asked my 15 yr old son to check the other rooms. He opened my daughters room and yelled FIRE! I jumped up and yelled for him to get the fire extinguishers from my truck. I ran and got the one in the hall closet. I yelled for my daughter to call 911. Once I went into the room I saw flames abot three feet tall coming from the bed. I took a deep breath and went in blasting the fire with the extinguisher . The smoke got so bad in a matter of seconds I had to open the window for fresh air so I could breath. I finished off the one extinguisher and was yelling for my son because the fire started up again. Finally he got me two more from my work truck and I was able to put out the fire. My point is PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU HAVE ATLEAST TWO FIRE EXTINGUISHERS IN YOUR HOUSE. things happen so fast and being prepared is a huge plus. After 15 minutes the fire company arrived. I figure without being able to put it out myself at the very least 1/2 of my house would be lost. Also check your fire alarms, mine did not go off and we tested them while the fire dept was there. I don't know why they did not go off so I will be replacing them. All is ok and no one got hurt but this is a HUGE wakeup call about what can go wrong and how fast things happen.
