Why Aren’t Carbon Monoxide & Fire Detectors Required in Garages?



Most garages have gasoline and other flammable liquids stored in them and have cars which can kill you with their emissions, so I find it interesting that building codes don’t require smoke/fire or carbon monoxide detectors in the garage. The code requires self-closing fire doors and fire-rated drywall construction to slow the movement of fire from garage to house, but why not smoke and CO detectors?
