October 1, 2015. my husband and I where out trying to finish soybean harvest on our family farm. Just when we where about to get out of each combine and move truck my husband looked over towards the yard and seen pillows of black smoke coming from the yard 2 miles away. We called 911 right away, living in the rural communites it takes a little while for the fire departments to respond. By the time we got to the yard, we made sure everyone way out and safe. the house was totally engulfed with in the first 10 minutes. …Read More
A few months ago, we installed CrossFires in our home in Florida. Our representative gave us 5 more brackets for us to take our alarms with us to our summer home in Wisconsin. The other night I was watching TV and my wife Jeanne, went to bed about 11:30pm. I finished my movie and went to bed about 12:30am. At 2:30am our CrossFire alarm started going off crazy. I got up and couldn’t smell or see any smoke so I thought it went haywire. I went downstairs to the kitchen and thought I smelled smoke. As I opened the basement …Read More
Our family was enjoying Sunday afternoon today when I smelled something like pizza burning. It was very faint and no one else smelled it. A minute or so later our crossfire alarms went off- everybody did exactly as we had planned. Turns out a smoldering fire was beginning in our dishwasher. Very thankful for the alarms. There was hardly any smoke at all and they would have had us out in plenty of time. I am still going to avoid running dishwasher at night! A scary experience but could have been so much worse. Huge credit to the alarms and …Read More

It was about the middle of September, about the time when evenings start getting cold enough where the furnace goes at night. It was Sunday morning and we were getting ready for church when we heard a sharp beep. It was the carbon monoxide detector!
Conclusion was it must be the furnace because it has been running off and on for the past week or so. My wife called the furnace guy; he will be here on Monday. We opened several windows to make sure the air was cleared out. I knew the furnace guy was coming so …Read More
On December 13 I had a fire at my home. It was in the early afternoon and I was taking a nap in my bedroom after a morning of Christmas shopping. My daughter was doing laundry and my young grandson was in a high chair in the kitchen when my daughter first noticed the fire. The fire started on the back outside wall of my house, apparently from an electrical short in a motion light installed on the back porch. Within seconds the entire outside back wall was ablaze, and a dark black, hot smoke was coming into …Read More
I have recently had to use my fire extinguisher from Crossfire to put out a grease fire on my gas grill that was on my deck off of my kitchen. I am a licensed daycare provider and I keep a fire extinguisher in my kitchen and in my utility room where my furnace is. Thank God I had that fire extinguisher from Crossfire in the kitchen and I could trust it to work.
Because I am a licensed daycare provider I have monthly fire drills with the children and I use the smoke detector to signal the …Read More
As soon as a Crossfire representative installed our detectors in our home, the carbon monoxide detector kept going off in our bedroom. We could not get the alarm to stay off and we could not smell any gas, etc. Our representative brought us another one and we replaced the entire detector. The alarm still went off.
We called the gas company. They came out and said our house had a high level of carbon monoxide and wondered how we could even stand to be in the house. Well we had been coughing and sick but didn’t know why. …Read More
Our fire started and ended in less than a minute. My three grandchildren were making Indian Fry Bread and got impatient. They turned the burner on full blast. When they lifted the cover the oil ignited. Flames shot up three feet high. My grandchildren got my attention when they started calling for a fire extinguisher. I had one from Crossfire in my laundry room. I grabbed it. That fire was out in less than a minute.
All of our Crossfire smoke alarms were going off both downstairs and up. One of our neighbors down the mountain heard …Read More
