Be Careful Heading Out To Haunted Houses
(Undated) -- People are rushing out to haunted houses for their weekend thrills these days, but state officials say they're not always safe. That's because the buildings don't have to follow any required building codes, and they're filled with plywood, plastic, and other highly flammable materials. Fire officials say parents should always go with their kids on haunted house visits. And, it's a good idea to look for those that have a sprinkler system inside. The sprinklers can be a life-saver if a fire breaks out.
