Survivors of NY Fire Sue Over Inadequate Smoke Detectors

First Alert and BRK Brands Inc. must pay $7 million for selling smoke detectors that failed to alert a family of a fire in their home. Two family members died in the fire because the ionization type detectors never went off. The company allegedly knew about the product's shortcomings but continued to market it anyway.
