How Do Home Cooking Fires Get Started?

According to the National Fire Protection Association, cooking is the leading cause of house fires during the holidays. Furthermore, according to their reports, December 25th is the second-worst day of the year for such fires. It pays to learn the hazards in your kitchen.
The key thing to remember is, do not leave your kitchen unattended. If you’re cooking or baking, you should be nearby to monitor everything.

Easy Ways to Prevent Holiday Home Cooking Fires?

  • Smoke Detectors — Remember to check your smoke detectors often and swap out the batteries semi-annually. You will likely need to replace your smoke detectors once every ten years.
  • Clean Your Stove — A dirty stovetop is a fire hazard. All of that grease build-up is highly flammable.
  • Flammable Objects — Remove any flammable objects from near to the stove, including oven mitts, dish towels and wooden utensils.
