Radiator Question: Furniture Placement

ESCape Member Posts: 1
Hello. I've grown up in Miami all my life, so I know next to nothing about radiators; however, I moved up north, so I now have one. I bought a cheap dresser from Ikea and it just fits between my radiator and wall. My question is will having my radiator next to the wooden dresser be a fire hazard or cause any warping? Thank you for any help and for your time. I attached pictures of it below:

    It'll be fine. If its Hot water it'll get up to maybe 180 on the coldest days. If its steam a bit hotter but still not enough to set anything on fire.
