Holiday Fire Safety 11-30-13 11:30 av

Cal-Fire encourages people on the Central Coast to practice good fire safety habits during the holiday season.   Officials say most home fires start because of holiday cooking. Cal-fire says:

-Keep children at a safe distance from hot liquids and cooking surfaces

-Have a fire extinguisher near the kitchen

-Don’t store items on the stove top because they could catch fire

-Keep pot handles on the stove pointing towards the back

-Never pour water on a grease fire, instead cover the pan with a lid or close the oven door

-And if your clothing catches fire, stop, drop and roll to smother flames.
