Cooking fires are the leading cause of home fires and home fire-related injuries. Not only can they cause thousands of dollars of property damage by setting your house on fire, but there is also the scarier risk of causing burn injuries or even death to your family or neighbors. Kitchen fire safety is a serious issue; home fires start in the kitchen more often than any other area in the home.
Unattended cooking is a leading cause of fire-related accidents taking place in homes around the world. In today’s busy world, it’s easy to get distracted by situations that grab your attention away from cooking for longer than intended. Upon returning, there could be an open flame causing smoke to fill the kitchen with your smoke detector (hopefully) going off. Please remember never to use water to put out a stove fire and always store a fire extinguisher in the kitchen. A stove fire most likely involves overheated oil or grease and using water will escalate the problem.
In 2016, cooking fires accounted for around 630,000 reported residential fires. This resulted in approximately 700 deaths and 6,500 injuries, according to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA). Add property damage worth $3.7 billion annually, and you start to realize how important it is to stop home fires involving cooking equipment.
But could all this have been avoided in the first place?
It’s evident from the above statistics that there’s a higher probability of home fire accidents occurring from “unattended cooking equipment,” “electric ranges, stoves and ovens,” and “older adults.” There is little doubt that fire prevention is the best cure. Therefore, we must prevent these cooking-related fires before they ever occur, which is the core design goal of the Wallflower Smart Monitor for electric stoves, ovens, and ranges.
