It is true that fire is not something which cannot be controlled, but what does matter is the property, we rescue in case of fire. There are many ways by which fire can be subdued. There are fire extinguishers, handhelds and some other types which are heavies that 23 kg. But these fire extinguishers are useless if we do not know if there is a fire in the building. We just got to know about it when it shapes itself in the form of a mammoth giant and starts engulfing everything it encounters. To subdue the fire and make the reasonable use of the fire extinguisher is the need of the hour. This can only be done if we get to know about the fire when there is still time to control it and there is still time to save precious property and valuable human life.
In the multi floors buildings, they often have the one smoke detector on every floor. Do you think it is sufficient? Fire is a notorious thing and can be broken anywhere. If it breaks inside a closed room, there are very few chances if the smoke will go out. If smoke liberates itself from the room there are chances that it is very late and there might be chances that fire spread to the other room on the floor since it has grown strong now because smock comes out of the closed room when there is an extensive fire in it. So it is good if there is a smoke detector on every floor in the hall of the floor. But there should be few more smoke detectors to catch the very scent of fire at the very beginning and this will help to save beloved home and save the precious life of you and of your kids.
The smoke detectors have the limits and area from which they can detect the smoke. If the area that is 30 by 30, there are majority of smoke detectors which might not be effective beyond that area. So there should be a proper number of the smoke detector to cover the area perfectly.

It would be wise to have a smoke detector in each room since it could be harmful to the home or for office if there are not enough numbers of fire detectors. Some areas are more prone to the fire and damage and the location of the smoke detector should be in the close vicinity of these hot spots, like the placing of the smoke detector in the close vicinity of the kitchens.
