STAMFORD - A new law makes it mandatory to have working smoke detectors in all Stamford homes.

The law requires all Stamford homes to be equipped with smoke and carbon monoxide detectors.

The new law was influenced by a 2011 Christmas fire that killed three young girls and their grandparents. City officials say there was no evidence of working smoke alarms in the house.

Officials say there won't be fines for violators. Stamford Mayor Michael Pavia says the city doesn't have the manpower to put more enforcement power into the smoke detector law.
