Tips to help prevent kitchen fires?

Kitchen fires can grow out of control! When it comes to a fire, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. If you are cooking, make sure that you:

•Have proper fire alarms. A fire alarm should make a distinct sound when it is at the end of its life, so you always know when to replace its batteries.

•Do not leave cooking food unattended. If you keep an eye on your food, it is much easier to see if it is beginning to catch flame.

•If you are cooking with a pan, turn the handle away from your body. In doing so, it becomes much more difficult for you to stumble into the handle—and have the hot pan leave the stovetop.

•Keep flammable materials away from the heat source. That includes a recipe, or your clothes!
