" Heating pad started fire; death cause uncertain
September 27, 2007
By Jeff Starck Wausau Daily Herald MERRILL -- A faulty heating pad was the cause of a fire Tuesday in Merrill home in which an 88-year-old woman was found dead, according to police. Results of an autopsy conducted Tuesday morning did not indicate how Lucille Heath died, interim Police Chief Ned Seubert said in a statement. The official cause of her death will not be known for several months, he said."
Some heating pads are not meant to be run for hours on end, and I would be very careful about using it while sleeping. Please read all the warnings on heating pad you have. I wouldn't want this tragic accident to happen to anyone else.
If you want to read more about this, go to WausauDailyHerald.com and search for heating pad.
Thanks for your time reading this.
