Yellow crime tape was still wrapped around an apartment at the complex at 3100 Summit Avenue near Cone Boulevard Monday.
It’s the apartment, which faces Summit Avenue, where Saturday’s fire happened. It left behind extensive damage inside and killed five young children.
It’s a tragedy that has now inspired the Greensboro Fire Department to educate more people about the importance of smoke alarms.
“So, that's why we are asking everyone in the community to help us,” Fire Marshal Timothy Henshaw said. “You've got to have a working smoke alarm in your home. You are 50 percent more likely to survive. Fires are so fast these days they are spreading rapidly.”
Henshaw says that Monday the department rolled out this social media campaign called #Hearthealarm.
