This appears to be an accident so there would be no criminal liability. There may be a product liability suit against the manufacturer of the portable heater but without more I do not see anything criminal here.
If I have answered your question, an accept and positive feedback is appreciated. Thanks!!!
I understand but the furnace was not the proximate cause. The cause was the portable heater. I am sorry for your loss but there is nothing criminal here, just a tragic accident.
