According to the Department, seven kitchen fires have occurred in the month of February alone. There was also one in January and one earlier this month. Out of the nine fires, three involved cooking oil. One such fire saw a resident actually attempt to remove the pot of boiling oil outside. He received minor burns.

As Deputy Chief Gary Bridge told London residents, “Kitchen fires are traditionally the most common and also easily prevented. We encourage people to not get distracted when cooking and be present at all times.

Sound words indeed.

And, okay, while I realize that a few of my cooking fire safety blog posts focus on the cooking fire problem in other countries, my main point is, cooking fires touch everyone regardless of where you live: a large cosmopolitan city like London or a small peaceful community in the American suburbs. We should never assume that a kitchen fire can’t happen to us. The truth is, cooking fires is a global problem and one that NFPA continues to work really hard on alongside its partners and other fire safety organizations around the world.

So with that in mind, NFPA reminds residents to please take caution when cooking. Just a few simple tips can go a long way to keeping yourself and your family safe. You can start by:

  • Keeping an eye on what you fry
  • Being alert when cooking
  • Keeping things that can catch fire away from cooking area

Find out how to stay safer from kitchen fires by visiting NFPA’s Cooking Fire Safety Central webpage where you’ll find videos, checklists, safety tips and so much more. Cette année, make it a point to eliminate the fire hazards associated with cooking. We’re here to help. To find out more, visit us at www.nfpa.org/cooking.
