ABC 36 and the Lexington Fire Department have teamed-up for a 'Smoke Detectors Save Lives" promotion.

Free smoke detectors will be given away on Friday, November 9th from 5pm-7pm at Lexington Fire Station#1 at 219 E. Third Street.

The Lexington Fire Department said statistics show that having a working smoke detector can reduce your risk of dying in a fire by up to 50-percent.

The Department also said that nearly two-thirds of home fire deaths occur in homes without a working smoke detector.
