Local business offers heat on freezing New Year's Eve

LAS VEGAS (KSNV My News 3) -- It's the coldest New Year's Eve in years in Las Vegas, but the freezing temps are actually great news for one local business. Business owner John Madole has something more valuable than gold: heat, and plenty of it.

Madole said he normally gets $6,000 on New Year's Eve from last-minute rentals of his heating units, but this year it's been even busier as the mercury kept dipping.

"It's cold for New Year's Eve," Madole said. "About ten degrees colder than it usually is."

It's almost too cold for the heater business. There have been several events that moved indoors and cancelled orders, but it didn't take long for those orders to be refilled.
