CAL FIRE WARNS OF FIRE DANGERS DURING HOLIDAY COOKING (PI)

JH 11/27/13

WITH THANKSGIVING TOMORROW, CAL FIRE WANTS TO REMIND EVERYONE ABOUT THE DANGERS THAT HOME FIRES POSE DURING THE HOLIDAY SEASON.

MOST HOME FIRES BEGIN IN THE KITCHEN AS A RESULT OF COOKING. TO HELP REDUCE THE CHANCE OF FIRE AND INJURIES ASSOCIATED WITH HOLIDAY COOKING, CAL FIRE REMINDS YOU TO NOT LEAVE COOKING UNATTENDED AND KEEP AN EYE ON WHAT YOU FRY. TURN POT HANDLES TOWARDS THE BACK OF THE STOVE. WHEN USING A TURKEY FRYER, BE SURE TO FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS CLOSELY. DO NOT EXCEED THE RECOMMENDED OIL LEVEL AND ONLY USE THE DEVISE OUTDOORS. AND MAKE SURE A FIRE EXTINGUISHER IS HANDY AT ALL TIMES. NEVER USE WATER TO PUT OUT A GREASE FIRE. FOR MORE TIPS, VISIT WWW.FIRE.CA.GOV.
