EFFINGHAM CO., GA (WTOC)- It is getting cold in the Coastal Empire and that means many people will begin firing up their heating units. The Effingham County Fire Dept. says that may be a dangerous move.
It will be near freezing temperatures the next few days and people are firing up their heaters to stay warm. The Effingham Fire Rescue team says it is important to be careful.
"The best advice is to have that unit cleaned and inspected before you fire that thing off," says Lieutenant Bryce Nyberg, with Effingham County Fire Rescue.
