- Never leave cooking unattended.
- Keep cooking areas clear of combustibles.
- Turn pot handles inward on the stove where you can't bump them and children can't grab them.
- Enforce a "kid-free zone" at least 3 feet around your kitchen stove.
- If grease catches fire in a pan, slide a lid over the pan to smother the flames and turn off the heat. Leave the lid on until the pot is cool. Never peak inside the hot pot to see if the fire is out.
