ST. PAUL -- Last year, residential fires claimed 38 lives in Minnesota; 75 percent of the deaths occurred in homes without working smoke alarms. State Fire Marshal Jerry Rosendahl thinks these facts alone should be enough to convince people to install and maintain smoke alarms.

"Those 38 victims died without time to escape," Rosendahl says. "An inexpensive alarm and a set of fresh batteries could have saved their lives."
