Streaming Stick + Overheating message Fire Hazard?

I have a streaming stick+ - for about one year.  Tonight I received an overheating message.  I followed directions and unplugged it.  Then I researched more about a the overheating problem.  

I am concerned about this being a fire hazard.  Some people say you need to unplug the stick when you leave the house as the stick is never really off and could overheat when I am not a home.  This is scary for me ….can this cause a fire?  I have a pet that in the house when I am not home.  Do I need to unplug the stick whenever I am not watching TV?  

I have an extender, will this help?
