Space Heaters Prohibited Friday Night at Lamar Field in Oxford
Space heaters will not be allowed to be used in the bleachers at Oxford’s Lamar Field due to fire code restrictions. According to Oxford Fire Chief Gary Sparks, fire codes prohibit the use of open flame devices.
Secondly, space heaters require a minimum of three feet of clearance from all directions which is impossible to enforce inside the stadium. The use of portable gas powered heaters however, are allowed to be used on the sidelines or on the cheerleader platform.
