Vermont is set to become the second state in the country to sell cigarettes designed to be less likely to cause fires.
Following New York, the Legislature passed a law that requires all stores to sell cigarettes that meet fire safety standards.
The new law takes effect on Monday.
Cigarettes are the leading cause of fire-related deaths.
Paul Burns of the Vermont Public Interest Research Group says fire-safe cigarettes are a way to save lives.
Stores will be allowed to sell their inventory of regular cigarettes before switching to the fire-safe kind.
A similar law took effect in New York two years ago. Since then fire deaths have dropped by 48%.
