PG County Fire Officials Warning Of Double Deadbolt Locks

(PG, County, MD)- Prince George’s County fire officials are warning of the dangers of double deadbolt locks. The locks require a key to unlock from both the outside and inside. Firefighters are issuing the warning after the third fatal fire in the county this year in which the home had a double cylinder deadbolt. The latest incident left 65-year-old Eka Usoro dead. She was pulled from a blaze at her Fort Washington home last Thursday with the deadbolt key in her hand.
