Seeing and smelling smoke is not a reason to jump from the second floor. You should remain near the floor with the door closed until the firemen arrive. If they don't arrive, and the fire is in your room, then its okay to jump. Before then, its just stupid

Please learn the mechanism of a SMOKE detector. Seeing smoke, smelling it, and the alarm going off are just 3 ways of identifying that there is a source of smoke - it in no way indicates the presence of fire. OP - you thoroughly deserve it.

Haven't you ever heard the expression "where there's smoke there's fire"? Why a vacuum cleaner set off the smoke detector, I have no idea. But I do know that you need to get some brains. I agree with #3. If the smoke detector goes off, the first thing I'd wanna do is get the f*** out of there.

The only thing that OP seemed to fail to do is to check the door with the back of her hand, which they teach you as a kid. But the OP definitely did the right thing. Smoke detectors aren't 100%, especially if the batteries are old. If you see and smell smoke, you gtfo.

Agreed. Better to be safe than sorry. So many people are used to fire alarms going off for anything that they don't even bother seeing if their is a fire.
