Vents and roofs vulnerable after snowstorms

Local safety officials are warning homeowners to check all vents around their house. The blockage of air vents on your home can lead to deadly consequences. Algoma Fire Chief Tom Ackerman explains what can happen if vents are not properly cleared of the recent heavy snows.  



Removing heavy snow from your rooftop can reduce the chance of the roof collapsing, according to Ackerman.  He says city residents can help out around the neighborhoods by digging the snow away from any fire hydrants that may be by their home and street.
