ABC News is reporting that there are more than 1000 house fires every year caused by space heaters. They demonstrated that placing a cloth or window curtain on the face of the heater causes it to burst into flame. A fireman measured the temperature of a space heater using an infrared camera. It showed 800 degrees. The interviewer commented, “Wow! Who knew it got that hot?”
