La Salle fire chief warns about fire dangers with space heaters

Posted by wlpo on January 20, 2016

Space heaters are nice but they can also be a fire starter.

La Salle Fire Chief Andy Bacidore says his city is off to a rough start in 2016 with space heaters blamed for two fires. Bacidore urges you to remember to have your space heater at least a few feet from flammable materials. Also put space heaters only on hard floors.

Something as simple as turning the heater off and unplugging when you leave could prevent a fire.
