KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WATE) – It is now time for a Rural Metro Minute.

During this cold winter, many are keeping warm with the help of heat lamps. Although they can provide a lot of warmth, they do pose as a fire hazard if not used properly. Jeff Bagwell, with Rural Metro, stopped in to tell us all about how we can stay safe and mindful when using them.
