House fire in U.S is triggered by pillow and electric heater

Another house fire took place in the U.S this week as a result of an electric heater.

Fire fighters rushed to the Jersey City home on Tuesday afternoon after an electric heater caused a pillow to catch on fire.

The electric heater’s power accidently came on when electricity was restored in the house. Prior to the fire, the homes electricity was off because of a power outage.

Fire fighters managed to put the fire out after one of them found smoke coming from the basement of the building where the fire occurred.

It has been assumed that the pillow was placed next to the heater by someone in the house without them knowing that the heater was still plugged in.

Electric heater causes house fire in U.S

The Daytona Beach Fire Department in the U.S has said that a house fire was the result of an electric heater problem.

The fire, which took place on Tuesday morning at 5am, generated heavy smoke and flames that came from the house.

Fire fighters arrived at the scene and were able to contain the blaze to the rear bedroom of the home.

They were able to minimise damage to the house after the heater malfunctioned in the bedroom where the fire began.

Sparks were said to have been coming out of the heater shortly before the fire began. Luckily there were no injuries as a result of the fire.

As a result of the fire, the U.S Fire Administration want to remind people to check the wiring on all electric heaters to make sure it is installed incorrectly, as well as check for overloaded circuits and extension cords.
