Ryan Harris says he and his roommate have been living in the house for almost two years, without the protection of a smoke detector.
Now he has three."It's a really great thing; I don't know what we would have done," he said.
In addition to the most common and inexpensive kind of detector, the volunteers had new 10-year, no maintenance detectors for people who might have trouble changing the battery.
The volunteers canvassed three full blocks, more than 100 homes and installed 16 detectors in homes that didn't have them.
They also checked and found one that wasn't working.
The victims from the fire are 11-month-old Chloe, 3-year-old Aiden, 7-year-old Raiden, 24-year-old Stephanie Spence, and 22-year-old Darrin Lane.
Raiden and Stephanie were the two most severely injured.
Neighbors of the family are gathering up donations to help them replace what they lost - which was practically everything except their lives.
The Red Cross hopes their outreach in the neighborhood prevents another loss like this.
"Having a plan to get out is also part of it, what do you do when you hear the smoke detector go off? That's part of what we're doing, but you have to have a working smoke detector, at least one, up to two or three in each home," said Laurie Summers of the American Red Cross.
