The Westerly Sun reported that there were three cooking-related fires this past weekend in Westerly. Thankfully no one was hurt and the damages were limited, but it’s an important reminder to be vigilant with your safety when cooking.
I think we tend to be more social in the summer and that can lead to us getting distracted when cooking. Especially if you are cooking inside and you have guests rollicking out on the deck or yard! Obviously spending time with the guests outside is more fun and can temporarily make you forget that you’ve got all the burners going on the stove. So let’s check in on cooking safety from the folks at the US Fire Administration.
Stay safe when entertaining!
