I came home the other night to find the house filled with gas. Mother had turned on the stove and did not notice that the pilot light did not catch. She is 87 and could not smell the gas (I found several articles that noted that loss of smell is common). I was babysitting my grandchild and almost ended up staying overnight at my daughter's. If I had, mother and the dogs would have been dead by morning.
I have found a couple of alarms (First Alert and Kidde brands) that are specific for natural gas, but found mixed reviews on both. Does anybody have any experience with either? Or any suggestions of another brand?
