Fires most likely during last week of year
ST. PAUL -- The last week of the year is when there are typically more fires than any other week of the year. Therefore, the state Department of Public Safety State Fire Marshal Division is warning Minnesotans to be extra careful. Locally, Kandiyohi Fire Chief Dwight Ryks is echoing those concerns.
Ryks warns that with challenging economic times, he's afraid folks will use inappropriate methods in attempts to heat their homes.
