Remember the three feet rule. If you are using a space heater, place it on a level, hard surface and keep anything flammable at least three feet away – things such as paper, clothing, bedding, curtains, or rugs. Space heaters and fireplaces require supervision. Turn off space heaters and make sure fireplace embers are out before leaving the room or going to bed. Don’t catch fire! If you are using a fireplace, use a glass or metal fire screen large enough to catch sparks and rolling logs.
