State Fire Officials Looking for Ways to Prevent More Fatal Fires

So far 30 Kentuckians have died in 2013 in accidental fires.
     Thirty Kentuckians have died in accidental house fires already in 2013.

     In most of those cases, no smoke detector were found.

     That's why the Kentucky Fire Marshal's Office held a meeting with other fire departments and community groups on Monday in Frankfort to find new ways to prevent such tragedies.

     They say it will take the entire community to prevent tragedies like the one that killed seven people in Knox County earlier this year.

     Some of the new ideas include going door to door in rural communities to make sure people have working smoke detectors.

      They also proposed tracking the detectors they give out and monitoring when they stop working or need new batteries.
