The heater in my bedroom caught on fire last night

I have a very cold apartment and an even colder bedroom.

I do not know why, but my apartment is always colder than it should be.

I have the thermostat set for seventy-five degrees, and it never gets above sixty degrees in my apartment. I told my landlord about the issue, but he has not had anyone take a look at it yet. Last winter, I lived with it, and I was fine. This winter is quite a bit cooler, and I think that makes a huge difference. My bedroom is even colder than the rest of the apartment, and I think that is because there are so many windows in my bedroom. I thought it was really cool when I first moved into the apartment. I loved all of the windows. It makes the room very bright and inviting, but I did not realize back then how much heat I would lose through those beautiful windows. I bought a small space heater to go in my bedroom last Winter. I used it all Winter long, and it worked great at keeping my bedroom warmer. I used it for the first half of this Winter as well, and it worked great until I woke up one night in horror. The heater had caught on fire. It had melted the outlet completely. Thankfully, I was able to get the fire out on my own, and it did not ruin much. I have learned my lesson and I will not be using a space heater in my bedroom or any part of my apartment ever again.
