Fire Safety in the Kitchen – The kitchen is one of the busiest and most important rooms in the home. It’s not just where we prepare food, but it’s also where we eat most meals and could also double as an office and a homework space. Unfortunately, the kitchen is also the scene of many fires. The heat sources used for cooking food are a natural fire hazard. If we do not take the appropriate precautions, we can easily have a kitchen fire. Some other missteps can compound the risk by putting our lives in danger.
