Fire in the Kitchen!
By Brenda B. Covert
  

1     You and your friends are hanging out, talking about nothing in particular. When the topic turns to fire, what image springs to mind? Does your mind's eye see the swaying flame at the tip of a candle? Do you think of logs crackling in a fireplace? Perhaps you smile and imagine a bonfire outdoors where you can roast hot dogs and marshmallows. You probably don't picture flames shooting up from a skillet in your kitchen.
 
2     Most house fires start in the kitchen. They often happen when someone is careless while cooking. Such a fire causes panic. Grease or electrical fires are fires that water can't put out. In fact, throwing water at it can cause it to spread! Many people get burned when they try to put out a cooking fire.
 
3     The most important rule to remember about a cooking fire is to get help. Children should never attempt to put out a fire. There are two other options. The first is to alert a responsible adult. If no one is available, children should call 9-1-1 for help. The operator will send firefighters to the rescue and will also tell the caller where to go and what to do.
