Do I smell a troll? No "fire alarms"? Did he mean no smoke detectors?
Where do they build houses in 2003 with no smoke detectors? If he's
for real, first things I'd do are to turn off that circuit and get it
checked and install smoke detectors.

Here in the Peoples Republic of NJ, AFAIK, there is no law that requires
you to put one in your existing home, if that home didn't require one
when built, you still own it, and you're not renting it out. But if
you sell it or rent it, then it needs to comply. And the OP says his
house was built in 2003. Hard to imagine anywhere in the USA where
smoke detectors were not required by then, but I guess anything is possible.
And AFAIK OP hasn't said where he is.

You do not say where you live and what codes apply to you. You said,
and I quote"AFAIK no code says the homeowner/builder has to add them
later - unless it's a rental property."
I just proved your staement wrong because Ontario code DOES require
that they not only be installed but maintained in working order.
Now you DO know.
