Some great reminders from our Minnesota State Fire Marshal Division.
Heating season is just around the corner. (Sorry, it’s true.) Now is a great time to prepare for cooler temps. Have a professional check out your furnace. Clean out the buildup from your wood stove or fireplace. More tips: ow.ly/SVNH30lR9dZ. #SafeNotSorry
