Every year more than 100 people in North Carolina lose their lives in fires. It's a number that could be a lot lower if homes have a working smoke detector.

Once again this year ABC11 is joining with the North Carolina Jaycee Burn Center at UNC Hospitals and area fire departments for Operation Save-A-Life in order to raise awareness of the importance of smoke detectors in homes.
