Heating is the second leading cause of home fires. Here are steps you can take to reduce fire hazards in your home.
From the Iowa State Fire Marshal Division Fire safety Tip: Always store propane tanks outside of buildings or garages. Vapors leaked indoors can be easily ignited by pilot lights or electrical equipment, causing an explosion. Nationally, propane-related grilling accidents cause more than 6,000 fires and explosions annually, resulting in 20,000 ER visits and 20 deaths.
