Kitchen fires are frequent and preventable. Every year there are millions of kitchen fires in the Unite States. Most of them are small, but fires of this kind kill about 400 people every year.
They can be prevented by practicing the following safety rules: keep stoves and ovens free of grease; do not wear loose clothing when you cook, and make sure young children are always supervised in the kitchen.
The South Lake Tahoe Fire Department urges you to keep your home fire safe.
