Kitchen Fires (Steph’s Page)

The kitchen is often the busiest (and most dangerous!) place in the home. 65% of house fire calls are related to kitchens, and young children are at the greatest risk for injury.

That is why it made us so proud to hear from 8-year old Steph, who had a close call in her own kitchen when a dish towel got too close to a flame.

She shared a great article about preventing kitchen fires with us, and we wanted to share it with everyone, along with some other kitchen fire safety tips. Thanks for passing this along, Steph!
