Was using a Lasko space heater, model CC23155 (from CostCo) in my kitchen/family room area when I noticed a small amount of smoke in the air. I couldn't determine exactly where it was coming from but I immediately turned off the heater and unplugged it. The space heater appeared fine, no melting or smoke marks. It wasn't until later that I realized that several electrical outlets in the room were not working and when I examined the outlet the heater had been plugged into I noticed a blackening of the outlet. No breakers were tripped. The electrical wiring in our home is up to date and meets all local codes. I am returning the product and am concerned about its safety.
