Gas Heaters

Every year people in winter storms try to use gas stoves to heat their houses- and with tragic results.

Jason zip is with the st. Joseph fire department and says you should never use your gas stove as a heat source.

Zip adds a fire started by gas stoves will be out of control in seconds after igniting.

He warns if you smell natural gas in your home you should immediately leave, don't touch light switches, and call 9-1-1.
