How can I prevent fires in my kitchen?
There are 5 basic safety rules you must remember while cooking in the kitchen:
Keep pot handles turned inward, away from the edge of the stove. Don't wear long sleeves while cooking. Long loose sleeves, hanging over the stove are likely to catch fire.
Supervise the oven or gas when baking. Make sure to turn them off when not needed. Do not place fabrics such as towels away near a gas or electric range. Safely store flammable liquids such as gasoline and cleaning fluids away from any fire or heat sources.
Is it safe to store a loan mower or a snow blower in the basement?
No. Flammable liquids may release dangerous vapors that may ignite and start a fire.
