3,800 house fires occurred across Victoria last year and over 42% of these started in the kitchen.
Some simple fire safety precautions which we can all take to reduce the risk of kitchen fires include…
Never leave cooking unattended;
Purchase a fire blanket and fire extinguisher and install them in easily accessible locations. Try to avoid falling into the trap of leaving them in their packaging or storing them in hard-to-find places.
