The Kentucky Fire Commission is urging people across the state to install smoke detectors after several fatal blazes.

Kentucky Fire Commission Executive Director Ronnie Day said in a statement that the use of smoke detectors alerts residents to danger and gives them more time to escape before they are overcome by smoke or trapped by flames.

The statement said there have been 22 fire-related fatalities since the beginning of the year.

The National Fire Protection Association says smoke detectors reduce the risk of dying in a blaze by 82 percent.
