The investigation into what started a house fire in Elyria that killed a four-year-old continues but has reaffirmed the need for working smoke detectors in every home.

For those who can’t afford smoke detectors, there are several agencies that install them for free.

The biggest of such programs, not just in Ohio but in the country, is the Northeast Ohio Region of the Red Cross.
