Recent house fires seen as preventable
Four house fires in a nine day period is unusual.
According to Creston Fire Chief Todd Jackson, three of the four house fires that occurred in late December were attributed to overloaded electrical wiring.
“Obviously, in the last few weeks it has been the space heaters,” said Jackson. “When the wiring was done in the houses, they weren’t really designed for the average draw that was being pulled on them.”
