(Updated 7:27am 21st May 2013)

44 house fires in Dorset last year didn't activate the smoke alarm because they were placed too far away.

Now Dorset Fire are encouraging people to make sure they're put up in the most important areas of their home.

That's one alarm on every floor, preferably in hallways and landings and in rooms where there are alot of electrical appliances.
