There are a variety of causes for fires, and the Shelbyville Fire Department is giving residents some common sense tips to avoid sparking a blaze going into the new year.
Scott McKee with the Shelbyville Fire Protection District says there isn’t one leading cause of fires in the Shelbyville area.
McKee says one big fire hazard can come with plugging power strips into other power strips.
McKee says the cold weather also brings a spike in house fires.
McKee appeared as a guest on the Newstalk WTIM Morning Show live from our downtown Shelbyville studios.
