Tuffy’s tip: Get a smoke detector

Citizen Staff Writer
Our Opinion

Take it from Tuffy the Yorkie: Smoke detectors are essential in every home.

Tuffy, a 5-year-old Yorkshire terrier, resides with Tucsonans Brad and Frances Bishop. And when a kitchen vent fan burst into flames about 2 a.m. Thursday, Tuffy knew just what to do.

His furious barking awoke the Bishops and they escaped the fire.

Tuffy was pressed into action because the Bishops had old smoke detectors that they had removed during painting and never replaced. When the fire damage is repaired, two new smoke detectors will be installed.

Smoke detectors save lives – even for families equipped with canine warning systems.

Our Digital Archive

This blog page archives the entire digital archive of the Tucson Citizen from 1993 to 2009. It was gleaned from a database that was not intended to be displayed as a public web archive. Therefore, some of the text in some stories displays a little oddly. Also, this database did not contain any links to photos, so though the archive contains numerous captions for photos, there are no links to any of those photos.

There are more than 230,000 articles in this archive.

In TucsonCitizen.com Morgue, Part 1, we have preserved the Tucson Citizen newspaper's web archive from 2006 to 2009. To view those stories (all of which are duplicated here) go to Morgue Part 1
