Fire Safety Tip:
Make sure to be careful with alternate heating sources like space heaters and kerosene heaters. They can both create a fire hazard if left unattended and kerosene heaters can also pose a danger of Carbon Monoxide. Also make sure all chimneys and flues are in good condition and clean to avoid fires that can quietly grow into a problem.
