Keep your Valentine's Day balloons close!

By Sasha Loftis. CREATED Feb 7, 2014

TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) - Valentine's Day is less than a week away. An Arizona power company has a warning.

If you're giving your sweetheart a bouquet of balloons, keep them close to you, according to Arizona Public Service.

If balloons get tangled in power lines they can short circuit and that can lead to blackouts. Balloons have apparently caused 130 blackouts in the last five years, APS said.

So keep them inside!
