The latest kitchen fire in Red Deer has prompted a release about fire prevention.
Red Deer Emergency Services members responded on Monday night to a kitchen fire at Northwood Estates, 5344-76th St.
No injuries were reported, and there was no damage estimate released.
But the city’s fire prevention officer, Julian Hedrich, wants to remind residents of the following safety tips:
– Stay in the kitchen while cooking — unattended cooking is the leading cause of kitchen fires.
– Keep anything that can catch fire — oven mitts, utensils, food packaging, towels and curtains — away from the stove top.
-Never leave candles burning unattended, and consider using flame-less (batter-operated) candles.
– Always dispose of cigarette ashes and butts in a proper ashtray.
– Always have working smoke alarms — your life could depend on them one day.
