What You Need to Know.  More fires start in the kitchen than in any other room. Those fires can be expensive; since even a minor incident, with no injuries, can result in significant damage. That’s why it’s important to keep up with the latest in fire prevention.  The most recent research tells us: 

  •  Never leave cooking food unattended. Doing so is the number one cause of kitchen fires.  
  •  Make sure cooking appliances, especially deep fryers, are safety certified by the appropriate government agency. 
  •  When using oil in a frying pan, always heat slowly at no more than a medium heat setting. 
  •  Always turn off stove burners and other cooking appliances immediately after cooking. 
  •  Never attempt to put out a grease fire with water. Use baking soda or a fire extinguisher. 
  •  Never remove or cover up a smoke detector due to nuisance alarms. The one alarm that isn’t a nuisance may save your life. 

Finally, experts say that if you can’t put out a fire immediately, get everyone out of the home and call emergency services.
