Fire Department Warning About Portable Heaters

Portable heaters will be used over the next few months by many people to keep warm as the temperature drops but you have to be careful where you place them to avoid setting your home on fire. 

Divisional Fire Chief Mark Wilson says they can be a fire hazard and should be kept at least three feets away from combustibles, things like your furnace, fireplace and woodstove. 

Portable heaters should also be switched off when you leave the house or turn in for the night.
