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 on grease or electrical fires can cause them to spread! Many people get burned when they try to put out cooking fires.
3 The most important rule to remember about fire is to get help. Children should never attempt to put out a fire. There are two options. The first is to alert a responsible adult.
