Keep Safety In Mind When Heating Your Home

Keep Safety In Mind When Heating Your Home

With the cold temperatures outside, you are likely looking to stay warm inside. 

The Rapid City Fire Department says heating fires make up 36 percent of residential home fires in rural areas each year.  The misuse of wood stoves, portable space heaters and kerosene heaters are especially common risks.

Review these resources from the National Fire Protection Association for more tips to stay safe, and warm, during the winter.
