We are remodeling my daughters first house....real 'fixer'.

Hello,We are remodeling my daughters first house....real 'fixer'. We took a second on our house to help her jump start her life. Was 'gutted' fixer becasue of prior owner electrical fire.We need a total of six (6) cadet heaters.We are running three (3) 240v heaters per each (separate) double pole 30 amp breakers using 10/2 wire. We cannot run more than 3 because of the 80% max rule for each circuit.Each of the 3 heaters will have separate single pole thermostats.**two (2) each - 240v 30 amp double pole runs to 3 heaters with separate thermostats. Can you help with a diagram for the 3 240v heaters in parallel with separate thermostats.Note; this is separate (second) permit from our initial stages of moving water heater, washer/dryer and adding a new bathroom. We were told to pull the breaker that was there and told the 5 original heaters on single circuit with #14 wire is what caught the house on fire from previous owner.....that got us the 'good deal'. We did pass the initial permit inspection for the mechanical/plumbing/electrical and he gave us a break if we pulled the breaker to fix the heater circuits. We are into this 6 months and we finally ready to do the heaters and button this place up.Please help with wiring diagram.Thank you,Bob D.
