After a fire killed two children Sunday morning, the Milwaukee Fire Department underwent a door-to-door effort to distribute smoke detectors in the neighborhood. 

Authorities said when they arrived on the scene flames could be seen coming from the house. The two children died on scene. They were identified as 4-year-old Romeo Robinson and his 2-year-old sister Stephanie. 

To help prevent another tragedy, firefighters offered fire safety education materials, checked smoke alarms in homes and installed new ones as necessary. 

If you need a smoke alarm, you can call the Smoke Alarm Hotline at 414-286-8980, and firefighters will come to your house and install the alarm free of charge.
