HAMBURG, N.Y. (WKBW) — The Big Tree Volunteer Fire Company in Hamburg is warning about a person or people who are going around the area offering free smoke detector inspections and becoming belligerent when told no.

Officials say if you suspect something suspicious you should contact Hamburg police or 911 and report it.
