DUBUQUE (KWWL) -

Just before Christmas, a fire at the Sheridan Village Apartment Complex in Dubuque forced a family out of its home.

It was the second fire in as many months at the complex.

Now the Red Cross and Dubuque Firefighters are taking steps to prevent another one.

They'll be going door-to-door at the complex Saturday to install fire alarms and talk fire safety with the residents.  It's part of a statewide campaign to reduce deaths and injuries from home fires by as much as 25 percent over the next five years.

In all, they plan to put a fire alarm in all 153 bedrooms of the apartment complex.
