Agreed. I never thought that was a real risk since we don't have equipment up there. We have one in the basement equipment, another two down in the basement living, and about 6 on the main level. None of them went off. If Mary hadn't asked me what I was doing in the attic dropping stuff (I hadn't been up there) I never would have known until it was more widespread. As part of the foster program, we were required to have loads of fire extinguishers and detectors. One of those extinguishers was what bought us time to get out and have the department get there. The wall was still "burning", but it put out the open flames in the floor pretty well.
