New home heating patterns may increase potential for chimney fires and carbon monoxide poisoning
With record-setting home-heating prices anticipated this autumn and winter, efficiency is at the forefront this year. Many homeowners address their financial concerns by turning to solid fuel appliances, like wood or pellet stoves.
Rick Morgan, Owen County EMS director, reminds the public that these heating patterns increase the risk of carbon monoxide poisoning and chimney fires.
Heading into Friday night’s first-round playoff game versus Holy Cross, Owen County knew the person they had to stop in order to have a chance at coming away with the victory. As it turned out, stopping Markel Walker was something the Rebels could not do.
Walker had a hand in all five of the Indians’ first-half touchdowns to give Holy Cross a 34-3 lead at halftime. They never looked back.
• The Indians finished the season 5-5 overall and 2-1 in the District 6. They defeated Newport and Lloyd and lost to Newport Central Catholic.
• Holy Cross is coached by Bruce Kozerski. Bengal fans may be familiar with Kozerski, who played for the orange and black for 12 seasons. He was a member of the Superbowl team that lost to the San Francisco 49ers in 1989.
