TEMPE, Ariz. -

This is what it looks like inside of a smoke-filled room during a fire. Wednesday ASU held a campus fire safety event, helping to keep students who may be living alone for the first time in their lives stay aware of fire hazards.

Since January 2000, more than 100 people have lost their lives in campus-related fires in the U.S.

That's prompted Governor Jan Brewer to pass a proclamation to make September "Campus Fire Safety Month."

Firefighters gave tips to keep college kids safe and demonstrated of how fast smoke can kill a person.

Jim Osborn, a father who lost his son in a campus-related fire, spoke about the importance of having properly working smoke detectors.

"It's probably the most difficult and devastating thing that's ever happened to me in my life. I came to realize that this device right here, if it had been properly placed in the right location and working, all three boys would be alive today," said Osborn.

Firefighters say smoke is quiet, toxic and deadly -- and if a person is trapped breathing it in, it could kill them in a matter of minutes.
