Twp. of Washington NJ,Twp of Washington Fire Department reminds us why we don’t plug space heaters into an extension cord?
This is because a space heater, no matter what size, draws a high amount of electricity and can overload a circuit or overheat an extension cord thus causing an electrical fire. If possible, get a space heater that plugs directly into the wall outlet.
These pictures are from a call tonight. We were called to an odor of something burning, upon investigation our crews found this cord.
