Man using fire extinguisher, toaster oven smoking Kitchen appliances can catch fire at any time.

SERVPRO of Broomfield/NW Adams County understands that cooking equipment is a leading cause of fire damage and fire injuries in your Northglenn home.

To help prevent fire damage, SERVPRO of Broomfield/NW Adams County would love to share these tips with you!

  • Many kitchen items can catch fire, including: dish towels, oven mitts, recipes, wooden tools, and loose clothing
  • Never operate the stove or oven when you are tired or have been drinking alcohol
  • If you are frying, broiling, grilling, or boiling food, stay in the kitchen. If you leave, even for a short time, turn off the heat
  • Keep flammable items at least three feet from the stove top
  • Do not allow children within two to four feet of the stove or oven
  • If you must leave the house while cooking of any kind, turn off the heat sources
  • Toaster ovens are more dangerous than people think, so keep a close eye on those as well

Remember that fire is fast. If you cannot contain a fire immediately, leave and bring everyone with you. Call 9-1-1 from outside the home.

SERVPRO of Broomfield/NW Adams County reminds you that fire prevention is the best strategy against fire damage.
