With near record cold temperatures forecast for the next two days, firefighters urge you to use care staying warm.
They say many South Georgians use space heaters as a primary heat source.
If you use them for a prolonged period without letting them cool off, it could lead to a fire.
Albany Fire Department Assistant Chief Sebon Burns said "I would say if you leave the room, cut it off. If you leave the house, unplug it. And I would always say leave your spaec heater directly plugged into your power source."
Firefighters also warn that you should never try to use your oven as a heating source because they have seen many house fires started that way.
