The city of Akron is working to ensure all residents have access to smoke detectors after a house fire killed seven people Monday.

Akron Mayor Dan Horrigan is offering free smoke detectors at his town hall meeting Tuesday at 6 p.m. at 1999 East Ave.

Councilwoman Tara Mosley-Samples says she'll also offer free smoke detectors at her Ward 5 meeting this Thursday at 6 p.m. at 550 S, Arlington St.

Additionally, Summit County residents can contact the Red Cross to request a volunteer to install smoke detectors. The number is 330-535-2030.
