Cooking Fires are the #1 Cause of Home Fires
The holiday season is upon us and that means an increase in kitchen fires. Thanksgiving is the peak day for home cooking fires, followed by Christmas Day and Christmas Eve. Leaving items unattended, or forgetting items in the oven are the top causes of these incidents.
Top Safety Tips Include:
- Stay in kitchen when cooking on stovetop
- Set timer on phone and kitchen to alert before completion
- Keep kitchen towels and oven mitts away from fire source
- Never leave lit candles unattended
