Those without electricity should not use gas ovens, gas ranges, barbecues, or portable or propane heaters for indoor heating. They use oxygen and create carbon monoxide that can lead to suffocation. Candles can cause fires, so use battery-operated flashlights or glow sticks for lighting. Using a kerosene heater, gas lantern, or stove inside the house can be dangerous. Maintain proper ventilation at all times to avoid a buildup of toxic fumes.
