A space heater by itself will not cause a fire. However, not following the space heater safety guidelines may start a fire. Actions that may increase the risk of fire include, but are not limited to: Leaving blankets or clothes on the heater, leaving anything flammable near the heater, and leaving the heater on in an unattended environment.

Does a hissing sound coming from the wall where a space heater is plugged in indicate a problem with the wiring or cause a fire?

It might. Does the sound follow the space heater to a different outlet? If you place your head between the space heater and the outlet, does the hissing sound come from the wall, or from the heater? Sometimes different sounds come from different sides of applicances, and these sounds can reflect off the wall. A standard vacuum cleaner and some electric irons draw about the same current as a space heater. Is the sound present with either of those plugged into the same outlet instead? It might be a snake, saying "thank you" for the warmth.
