Most Household Fires Start in the Kitchen
We can’t say it enough, cooking is the number one cause of house fires! Cooking causes and average of 172,900 reported home structure fires a year, that’s in the neighborhood of 44-49 percent of all home fires reported in the U.S.
Leaving cooking food unattended, placing combustibles too close to the heat source, and unintentionally turning on or not turning off the equipment lead the list in why cooking is responsible for the most home fires.
Remember never leave your range or stove unattended while cooking, and keep your cooking area clean and free of combustible materials. ALWAYS keep a fire extinguisher readily available.
