GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) - Volunteers with the Red Cross have gone door to door in Grand Forks as part of an effort to increase awareness on fire safety among some homeowners.

WDAZ-TV (https://bit.ly/1KxTfe9 ) reports that volunteers recently visited about 600 homes to install new smoke detectors and ensure that those already installed have working batteries.

Deb Marynik is a Grand Forks resident whose home was visited by volunteers. She says she feels safer knowing that the smoke detectors in her home are now working.

The Red Cross partnered with the Grand Forks Fire Rescue and the Grand Forks Air Force Base Fire Department in this effort.

The Red Cross says volunteers installed more than 100 smoke alarms and batteries in the Grand Forks area.
