FORT WORTH, TX -- Wintry weather may bring more than just freezing temps .
Check this out: Overnight, there were two deadly fires -- one in far East Dallas, another near the Stockyards in Fort Worth. The Fort Worth Firefighters say something as simple as a working smoke detector can make a difference between life or death.
"A smoke alarm can give you an extra 30-45 seconds to get out of the house if there's a fire -- and that's time you definitely need to get out," Kyle Clay with the Fort Worth Fire Department explained.
Monday morning, a fire crew went door- to-door in a neighborhood that had a fatal fire last week. The crew handed out free smoke detectors to try to create a fatality free zone.
In just one day, Fort Worth FD says they installed 44 new alarms, and changed out 21-batteries.
Guess it's safe to say: mission accomplished!
