Fire-Lite Alarms MS-9050UD addressable fire alarm system saved the historic Inn at Danbury, in Danbury, N.H., on the afternoon of August 15, 2008. According to local news accounts, the four-alarm fire summoned firefighters from nearly 20 area departments; they extinguished the fire that originated in the three-story barn before it reached the attached inn and restaurant. "The barn suffered water and smoke damage throughout, but there was no damage to the Inn at all," claimed Chief Thomas Austin of the Danbury, N.H., Fire Department. According to the Danbury Fire Department, the Inn's MS-9050UD fire alarm notified fire and police 5 minutes prior to the first phone call from the premises to report the fire. "Had it been five more minutes, the Inn would have suffered total devastation," said Chief Austin. "I can't compliment the alarm system enough. If it hadn't worked, they might not have realized the situation until it was too late." The Inn at Danbury is an historic landmark that resides in a rural area of central New Hampshire.
