Some areas remain without power this morning and fire officials caution against using the wrong type of fuel in space heaters.
Kerosene heaters are designed just for that, kerosene. NEVER pour gasoline into a kerosene heater. Remember to keep space heaters away from curtains, furniture and other combustible items.
Also be safe with your holiday lights and other things that get plugged in. Never connect too many strings of lights together and don't put too many things in the same outlet. Too many extension cords can overload circuits.
