ALCORN COUNTY, MS (WMC) -

Residents in Alcorn County could soon receive free smoke detectors.

A partnership between the State Fire Marshal's Office and the Vision 20/20 project is putting 500 new smoke detectors in Alcorn County homes.

The county's fire service, along with Alcorn County Boy Scouts, will be passing out and installing the smoke detectors.

Fire officials said working smoke detectors cut the risk of fire death in half.
