An inferno at a home day care kills 5 children. The fire chief said there weren't enough smoke detectors
Erie, Pennsylvania (CNN)As family members mourn the death of five children in a Pennsylvania day care fire, questions remain about why the home apparently didn't have enough smoke detectors.
The blaze destroyed the Harris Family Daycare in Erie early Sunday, killing four siblings and a fifth child whose mother, Elaine Harris, was the homeowner and ran the daycare, Erie Fire Chief Guy Santone said.
Fire inspectors could only find one smoke detector, which was in the attic of the two-story house that operated as a day care, Santone said.
"If there were the proper amount of smoke detectors in this structure, then most, if not all, would have survived," Santone said.
A relative of the day care owner told CNN the facility was often inspected to ensure the safety of children. Pennsylvania state code requires child care facilities run out of a home to have "a smoke detector on each floor and in the basement."Fire inspectors, police investigators and an electrical engineer are actively investigating the blaze, Erie County District Attorney Jack Daneri told CNN.
