Property owners need to watch the weather situation as a significant winter storm will impact substantial portions of the country.
Weather experts project ice, freezing rain, and heavy snowfall from the Southern Rockies to the Plains, Midwest, and Northeast.
The National Weather Service has issued winter storm watches already for parts of Kansas, Missouri, and Indiana beginning Tuesday.
What you need to know.
Winter weather means an increased risk of fire, or damage from heavy snow, ice backup, frozen pipes, and bitter cold.
Before the storm, take a moment to inspect your property. Be sure that your gutters and downspouts are clear of debris. If you use electric heaters, be sure to operate them safely to limit fire risk.
If you use a fireplace or woodstove, make sure your chimney has been cleaned recently.
The National Fire Protection Association says December, January, and February are peak months for fires caused by heating sources.
