Sorry to hear of the fire, Casey! I have to take apart a ceiling fan light and see what's up with it.
I just had to do that just last week Kenny. The ceiling fan light in our bedroom was more like a strobe. Kept the 3 piggly wiggly cfl's blasting on & off. Turned out a twist nut loose on the common.
Casey....glad you guys awoke when you did. We all know how fast things would have burned as soon as flame came alive!

Said by several others up above too BUT PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE make sure that in addition to at least two smoke alarms, one at least should be a 110v with battery back up, that you get one carbon monoxide detector. There are available combination smoke and co alarms. We dont want to lose you Casey. And that goes for everyone else too!
Casey, Glad you and the rest of the family are ok! Get those smoke detectors in working order, Also would not hurt to get some Co alarms! Shawn
Good man Chris, disregard above,
Glad you and your family are ok!!! I just put new smokes and a co up today!

Fire takes seconds to get hold, its not going to wait on you to get out the house safely, advanced notice is a life saver and the best thing for that is WORKING smoke alarms, and of course a plan of action, escape route etc..
I dont mean to preach the obvious but its something i feel strongly about having lost 4 members of my family in a housefire, caused by faulty wiring, more often than not its the smoke that kills you, isnt it better to know its coming?
Check your batteries guys..
