After a mostly mild start to our summer, the past week has been especially brutal. On multiple occasions last week the temperatures climbed into the lower 100s, and the heat index reportedly almost reached 110 degrees Fahrenheit.
The long summer days are a thing of the past and cold winter nights are here to stay. Many people have fireplaces in their homes, and it is very exciting being able to sit by the fire on a cold winter’s night. With the cold weather upon us, it is even more important to practice fire safety in the home.
Tuesday night, the Lincoln Parish Fire District No. 1 responded to a fire in Dubach, which resulted from a propane heater located in a bedroom. There was only minimal damage in the house with the exception of the bedroom where the heater was located.
