Pets, like human family members, are vulnerable in the face of fire hazards. With their curious nature and inability to understand danger, they can inadvertently put themselves in harm’s way.

Real Life Scenario

We have recently installed an iMist system in the house of newlyweds Sandra, and Andy Hawe after they experienced the unimaginable just days after their wedding, when a fire sparked in their house with Sandra’s two sons and the couples 3 dogs and cat while they were away on honeymoon.

Nearly 30 firefighters were called to the property and worked for three hours to extinguish the blaze.

Mrs Mackenzie-Hawe’s sons, Danny, 17, and Jamie, 16, fled from the house using the family’s planned evacuation route while their father, Donald – who was looking after the boys – tried to tackle the flames with the garden hose.

The teenagers then ran back inside through the thick smoke to try and save their pets and managed to pull one dog to safety.

However, the family’s beloved Labrador, Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and Norwegian Forest cat perished.

“Having been forced to climb out an upstairs window due to the smoke, our brave boys then re-entered the burning building with a towel over Jamie’s face due to the thick smoke, and as a result, he managed to save the life of one of the dogs.

“Their loss is what we grieve most.

“Possessions can be replaced but we adored those animals.”
