The state fire marshal's office is urging Tennessee residents to create an escape plan in case there's a fire in your home.
Commissioner Julie McPeak says creating and practicing an escape plan can help get individuals out of the home quickly and safely during an emergency.
In creating the plan, suggestions include drawing a floor plan of the home and marking two ways out of every room if possible.
Officials also suggest installing smoke alarms inside and outside every sleeping area and on every level of the home.
A new U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics study reveals that Tennessee leads the nation in the share of workers being paid at or below the federal minimum wage of $7.25 an hour.
The study estimates that 7.4 percent of Tennessee's workforce-or 117,000 workers-was paid minimum wage or less last year. That's well above the national average of about 4.3 percent of the workforce.
Tennessee is one of only five states without its own minimum wage law, which means the state defaults to the federal minimum standard.
In Tennessee, a legislative committee earlier this year rejected an attempt to create a state minimum wage. It would match the federal minimum but add $1 per hour for workers who have not been offered health insurance.

A Sparta resident was killed late Friday night in a three-vehicle crash on Highway 70 in DeKalb County. The victim was identified as 25 year old Jeremy Vick.
According to the Tennessee Highway Patrol, Vick was driving a 1997 Honda Civic when the vehicle struck the rear of a 2005 Ford Mustang driven by 23 year old Joshua Smith of Morrison, who had slowed to make a turn into a parking lot. The impact caused Vick's car to slide into the oncoming lane, where it was struck head-on by a 2004 Mitsubishi, driven by 22 year old Beth Holeton of Dowelltown.
Vick died at the scene. No one else was injured.
