The Dangers of Heating Equipment
Norwalk's fire marshal would like to warn people about the dangers of using space heaters or barbecues to heat their homes. Heating equipment is a leading cause of home fires during the months of December, January, and February.
One of the most dangerous things you can do is put a space heater too close to things that easily catch fire, such as:
- Upholstered furniture
