CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

Cincinnati city leaders are expected to announce new fire safety legislation on Tuesday.

Vice Mayor Roxanne Qualls, Councilman P.G. Sittenfeld, Fire Chief Richard Braun and others plan to discuss a new ordinance requiring all rental properties in the city to have a photoelectric smoke detector.

Photoelectric alarms quickly sense smoke from smoldering, smokey fires. Officials say this type of circumstance is how most fatal house fires begin.

Ionization alarms better sense smoke caused by flaming, fast-moving fires. It's estimated that 90% of homes have an ionization form of alarm.
