Subject:   Dehumidifier Recall Information
Authority: Lt. Bob Konstanz

Recently the Washington County Sheriff’s Office has investigated several residential fires where it is believed the cause of the fire may have been a dehumidifier.

 

During these investigations our agency learned of several recalls on dehumidifiers and urge citizens to check whether they are using a dehumidifier on this recall list.

 

Additionally, based on information from a local fire department, people should plug their dehumidifier directly into an outlet of ample size to sustain the load of the dehumidifier.

 

Extension cords for use with a dehumidifier should be avoided.  Below is a link to recall information.
