60% of house fires start in the kitchen, but these fires can be prevented! Take these simple steps to keep your family safe:
- Don’t leave the kitchen when cooking on the stovetop.
- Keep the stovetop area clean and free of clutter.
- Tie back hair and loose clothing.
- Keep a lid nearby to slide over a small grease fire and keep it on until the pan is cool–NEVER put water on a grease fire.
Frying is a leading cause of kitchen fires – stay safe AND healthy and consider baking or broiling your food instead!
