If ever anyone needed to be reminded that their fire alarms should be regularly checked for their effectiveness, this is it!
We loved our van but we've now sold it and bought this on the same site

Can't see anything about a failed smoke alarm in the report.

Probably not Henry, but where a caravan fire is concerned (or any fire for that matter) the quicker the occupants get out the better chance of survival. This is a reminder to everyone, and not just caravan dwellers, to make sure that their smoke alarm is in working order and to check that its working on a regular basis.

Trouble is, I'm not convinced that smoke alarms necessarily react quickly enough in a small space such as a caravan to give people enough warning.

Though I would still recommend that everybody has one.

I have smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors installed, one is mains powered and the others are battery. You never know what may cause a van fire, rodents nibbling at wiring or just damp or water egress sparking a short. In this case we do not know what is the real story, he may have been drunk and dropped a fag or something, but safety should be in all minds of static and tourers as they are sat for long periods in a open environment with who knows what sniffing, nibbling, peeing etc.

Keeps safe folks.
