How To Prevent Heating Fires

Winter’s sub-zero temperatures bring the Northland into what’s often referred to as the “home heating fire season”.  Accidents can sometimes happen and with people looking for ways to keep their home warm, they unfortunately sometimes take shortcuts when it comes to basic fire safety.

Heating fires are the second leading cause of home fires.

The Northland Chapter of the American Red Cross offers the following tips for Northlanders to help prevent home heating fires.

  • Don’t put any heat source within three feet of anything flammable, such as blankets, curtains, and furniture.
  • Never use grills, camp stoves, or anything not intended to be a heating source.
  • Never ever use things like charcoal fires or propane torches to thaw frozen pipes.

In addition, people are urged to be safe when burning candles.  Never leave them unattended.
