NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) -- As temperatures drop overnight Saturday, the FDNY is reminding everyone how to safely use space heaters at home.
The warning comes in the wake of the deadly Bronx high-rise fire, which officials say was sparked by a space heater.
Here are some tips:
- Don't use extension cords. Plug the space heater directly into the wall.
- Keep it at least three feet away from bedding and other flammable materials.
- Turn off the space heater before leaving the room or going to sleep.
A Code Blue went into effect Saturday night. Temperatures in the city will feel like the teens early Sunday morning.
