What causes most fires in Kingsville?
Our research has shown that the current most common place where fires start is in the kitchen. You should always keep a large lid near the stove when you are cooking. Simply sliding the lid on a burning pot and then turning off the burner should extinguish the fire. Never try to move a burning or hot pot and never use water on a burning pot. It will spread the fire! Never leave cooking unattended especially if you are using oil or high temperatures. You should also wear tight fitting clothing while cooking. It is recommended that you utilize only a thermostatically controlled deep fat fryer for deep fat frying. Oil heated in a pot on the stove can be easily ignited. Many night time fires result from persons under the influence of alcohol attempting to cook. Remember that drinking responsibly includes keeping your family safe from fire.
