Nearly half of all home fires start in the kitchen, so this is an area of particular concern for fire safety and prevention. Hot cooking equipment plus grease and oil makes a potentially dangerous combination that requires your attention while preparing meals, and fire protection equipment must be at the ready should an incident occur.
