Earlier today, Wellington Fire responded to a 911 call for a possible structure fire in the area of Mt. Nimbus St. and Ronald Reagan Ave. No smoke or flames were visible when Engine 16 and Battalion Chief 3 arrived on scene. After completing their investigation, firefighters found an electric space heater that had overheated and began to smoke. Thankfully, there was no fire or damage to the home. We want to thank our partners at Poudre Fire Authority for your assistance.
With the colder temperatures, more time is being spent indoors. Portable space heaters have become a popular way to heat a room. According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), heating equipment, such as electric space heaters, is one of the leading causes of home fires during the winter months. If you plan to use portable electric space heaters, make sure to follow these safety tips.
1. Keep the heater at least 3 feet away from anything that can burn, including people and animals.
2. Place the heater on a sturdy, flat surface.
3. Make sure your heater has an auto shut-off to turn the heater off if it tips over.
4. Inspect for cracked or broken plugs or loose connections, and replace any before using.
5. Never use an extension cord. Plug the heater directly into the wall outlet.
6. Space heaters should be turned off and unplugged when you leave the room or go to bed.
