The Burlington Free Press reports an all-too-common winter story about a house fire started by a space heater. Fortunately the house wasn’t completely destroyed, and no one was injured in this case. But it could have ended very differently. As Kathryn touched on last month, space heater safety is very important. As the Fire Marshall’s Office said in this case, space heaters should be used only temporarily and kept clear of combustible materials.
Stay warm–but be safe!
