Kentucky Fire Commission Urging Safety
The Kentucky Fire Commission is urging people across the Commonwealth to install smoke detectors after several fatal blazes. Kentucky Fire Commission Executive Director Ronnie Day says the use of smoke detectors alerts residents to danger and gives them more time to escape before they’re overcome by smoke or trapped by flames.
Day says there have been 22 fire-related fatalities in Kentucky since the beginning of the year. The National Fire Protection Association says smoke detectors reduce the risk of dying in a blaze by 82 percent.
