So I have no idea how hot she had it turned up, but a woman I know had this type of heating. It slighly melted a rubbermade container near her bird's cage on the floor. Well, the toxins killed the bird from the fumes. (Birds are very fragile when it comes to air toxins). She placed her other bird in a different cage at the same place, and the same thing happened. She didn't realize until she moved out.
