Brrr! Your home’s heating systems are working double time to keep you warm this winter. The Newaygo Fire Department says safety must be your top priority since heating is the second leading cause of home fires. Follow Newaygo Fire Department's suggestions to keep your home warm and safe.
“The biggest mistake is putting something too close to a heating source,” says Jason Wolford, chief of Newaygo Fire Department. “Keep anything that can burn 3 feet away from space heaters, fireplaces, wood stoves, and radiators.” Remember that skin burns too. Make sure that people and pets stay 3 feet away.
