Don’t Plug Space Heaters Into Power Strips

With cold weather now here, fire officials are warning people not to plug space heaters into power strips or extension cords. This is due to the fact that space heaters use a lot of power, often more than the strips or cords can handle, which can cause them to melt, which may lead to fires. Heating equipment is blamed for about 56,000 home fires across the country between 2009 and 2013.
