Prevent Kitchen Fires Are you aware that two out of five residential fires begin in the kitchen? Kitchen, or cooking fires, result in over $300 million in property damages, over 3,700 injuries, and over 140 annually. When you consider that the vast majority of kitchen fires are preventable, these figures become even more staggering. For these reasons, this year's Fire prevention Week will focus on the theme of "prevent Kitchen Fires." With useful knowledge about how kitchen fires start, ways to prevent them and ways to handle them in the unfortunate case where they ignite, people will be able to lessen the damage caused by this preventable disaster. uSinG your STove Top & oven: • Never leave cooking unattended. • Keep it clean. Food particles and grease residue can ignite and cause a fire. • Create a “Kid-Free Zone” that children are aware they are not allowed to enter. in CASe oF Fire in THe KiTCHen: • Never use water on a grease fire. • If it is small in the pan, throw baking soda on top of it or cover it with a metal lid. • Never use flour or fan the flames with a towel. • Use an ABC rated dry chemical extinguisher. Be sure it is placed next to an exit so that you can back out of the kitchen and home if the fire becomes uncontrollable. • If it is too big to smother with a lid or put out with an extinguisher, turn off the burner, move the pan off the burner if you are able to, and evacuate the house. • If it is in the oven, keep the door closed and turn off the heating element. • Do not remove a lid or open the oven door until the pot or pan has completely cooled. • Before trying to fight a fire, be sure to evacuate everyone from the home. • Turn off the burners or oven. If the fire does not go out, exit the home and call for emergency help.
