Kitchen fires are focus of Farmington Fire Department prevention efforts
Kitchen fires — or, more accurately, cooking fires — are the number one cause for structure fires around the United States. In Farmington, kitchen fires have accounted for 17 structure fires over the past seven years.
Fire Prevention Week is Oct. 6-12. While it is a national observance, the Farmington Fire Department will do its own work to bring the week’s theme, Prevent Kitchen Fires, to the community.
