Sometimes you hear people say things over and over and you just become numb to it.

One of those things that we actually tell you to do twice a year on 1077 'GNA is change the batteries on your smoke detectors when you change your clocks twice a year.

They really do save lives as we found out this morning when a man was woke up by his chirping smoke detector to a house full of smoke at 5am on Rutland Avenue. He then dialed 911, and alerted his neighbors who all got out safely. The cause of the fire is still under investigation according to WNYT.
