A week before Christmas, a fire broke out in the Veltre’s north Forsyth County home a little after midnight. Luckily for John and Andrea Veltre, and their daughter, the family’s smoke alarms were in working order and woke them up.

“If they weren’t working properly, we would not be here. The alarms had one job, and they did that job, they woke us up.” Watch the video below to hear their story of survival.
