Smoke alarms still help reduce fire fatalities

We are pleased to report no mishaps involving fireworks in Brunswick County during this year’s Independence Day celebrations. We are alarmed, however, by the number of fire deaths our state has had so far this year, including one at a mobile home in Leland on May 31 that killed the wife of a Winnabow firefighter. The cause of that fire has not been determined and it is unclear whether the residence had a functional smoke alarm.
