State Fire Marshal Warns Public About New Viral Video

The State Fire Marshal is warning teens and parents not to try to copy the latest viral video. 

Fire Marshal Peter Ostroskey said a video that's gained attention on the TikTok app has encouraged teens to partially insert the plug part of a phone charger into a wall outlet and then slide a penny down the wall to make contact with the two exposed prongs. 

Minimally you get a bunch of sparks. Or you could damage the electrical system of the home. Don’t do it.
