The cold winter months have many people bundled up inside to stay warm, and with fireplaces and heaters on to heat things up, residents face an added danger to finding themselves indoors more than out.
Whether someone tips over a heater or simply forgets to watch a fire burning in their fireplace, the risk of a house fire grows with these heating elements in place, and the only way to be sure everything is being done for residents’ safety is to make sure a smoke alarm is installed properly in each individual’s home.
Some people just get a kick out of helping dogs in need.
The Louisiana Tech University soccer team certainly does — and is to be commended.
Tech’s soccer team showed their love for their furry friends last weekend as they hosted an 24-hour soccer event at the Louisiana Tech University Soccer Complex starting at 12:01 a.m. Sunday morning and ending at 11:59 p.m. Sunday night in an effort to raise money for a local animal shelter.
