The Pelham Manor Fire Department reminds all about home fire safety tips during this next round of cold weather:

• Keep anything that can burn at least three feet away from heaters.

• Have a three-foot “kids free zone” around open fires and space heaters.

• Never use your oven to heat your home.

• Remember to turn portable heaters off when leaving the room or going to bed.

• Plug any space heater directly into wall outlet and do not use extension cords.

• Make sure the fireplace has a sturdy screen to stop sparks from flying into the room.

• Make sure your fireplace flue is open when starting a fire in the fireplace.
