Fire Department Shares Images Highlighting Why You Should Sleep With Doors Closed


It can be difficult to convince your kids to sleep with the door completely closed. Whether it's because of the monsters under their beds, or because they like to wake you up at five in the morning. But the Cold Spring Harbor Fire Department near New York recently took to Twitter to share images that they hope will get parents to be stricter with their kids when it comes to sleeping with the door closed. 

The two images show the same door. On the one side, the door is completely black from a house fire, and on the other side, the door looks almost untouched except for some soot. The fire department says that the images show just how life saving a closed door could be.
