According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), there were in excess of 365,000 house fires in the U.S. in 2015. And perhaps even more alarmingly, many of those blazes can be chalked up to either accidents or to things found in the home. It’s arguably no wonder, then, that an Oregon fire department has seen fit to caution the public about using one common household item: the humble extension cord. And the warning the department gave out was grim indeed.
