A victory for Watertown state Rep. Rachel Kaprielian.
The governor has signed a bill that she championed that requires the sale of self-extinguishing cigarettes.
The cigarettes go out when they're not being puffed so they're less of a fire hazard.
An average of 20 people are killed and 150 injured each year by cigarette-related fires in Massachusetts. the AP reports today.
