  • The Delaware State Fire School gives safety tips on how to prevent kitchen fires in recognition of Fire Prevention Week, Oct. 6-12.
    The following tips include:
    - Stay in the kitchen when you are frying, grilling, broiling, or boiling food.
    - If you must leave the room, even for a short period of time, turn off the stove.
    - When you are simmering, baking, or roasting food, check it regularly, stay in the home, and use a timer to remind you.
    - If you have young children, use the stove's back burners whenever possible. Keep children and pets at least three away from the stove.
    - When you cook, wear clothing with tight-fitting sleeves.
    - Keep potholders, oven mitts, wooden utensils, paper and plastic bags, towels, and anything else that can burn, away from your stovetop.
    - Clean up food and grease from burners and stovetops.
