HMO Fire Video
Interesting little video from the Met Police posted on the Facebooks recently,

HMO literally burning down around the residents, what looks like a Kentec conventional working perfectly and residents not reacting in the slightest! 

(Note how the alarm is sounding before they even get through the door)

In my head I think of poor false alarm management previously? HMOs a notoriously difficult area to deal with!
Not just the management of false alarms an issue here

1.15 into the video, a tumble drier (or washing machine) beautifully built in under the stairs of the HMO!!!! Really????
This is why stay put is still preferred in flats - because no one will take any notice until it's too late or at least until a point that they'd be aware of the fire even if there wasn't an alarm in the first place!
