Space Heater Safety!

Four people have been killed in two recent home fires caused by portable electric space heaters in Washington State. “The use of space heaters increases during the colder winter months, we want residents to stay warm, but we also want them to be safe,” say's Washington State Fire Marshal Chuck Duffy. Duffy urges caution and asks that residences using space heaters practice safe heating behaviors, as this is the peak time for home heating fires.  While this video is not of Washington State, it still has great and valuable information to learn from when using portable heaters.
