Wilmington firefighters knock on doors

Wilmington firefighters will take the fire safety message door-to-door.  
Firefighters will be handing out fire prevention pamphlets and installing smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors as they go door-to-door on the city’s northeast side.  The effort will focus on the community surrounding East 22nd Street and North Church Street.

The National Fire Prevention Association says one-third of home fire deaths happen in homes without smoke detectors.
