Probley another heater... People have to do what they have to do to try and stay warm with the prices of natural gas. People just be careful when using them.

I see a Kentwood fire engine in the picture. That sure is a long run for mutual aid! Seeing the same picture is used for the Holland apartment fire article, I'm guessing WOOD didn't get any video and is trying to pass off old images as new. Why not just make up stories while you're at it?

Not just in Ionia County - everywhere! What about that poor man who was burned, living in his camper - SO sad. It seems most (but of course, not all) of these fires are traced back to inappropriate use of, or defective alternative heating sources. PLEASE! People be careful and use them only as intended, according to directions.

You know what's funny - people like you. You actually take the time to go the Internet, go to Woodtv.com , read a story, review the images in the story, and then make some stupid comment on what Woodtv did wrong. You know what - go to another fricken website then loser!!! Spare all of us your foolishness.

By the way, if you think WOOD-TV is a responsible news agency which works hard to present accurate and truthful stories, you must be incredibly naive. I was simply pointing out yet another example of how lazy and inaccurate our news media has become. They'll tell you the most amazing, heartbreaking, or tear-jerking story if they think the viewers will believe it. The last thing they care about is if the facts are accurate or if the details are polished. It's all about sucking you in and making you think that if you saw it on the news, then it must be true.
