Devon & Somerset Fire & Rescue Service tell us that more than half of all the fires they attend start in the kitchen. Even a small fire can result in the loss of decades of memories in just a few seconds. There are a few simple things we can all do to reduce our risk of having a cooking fire – click  here

Anyone who cooks is at risk of fire, but there are certain groups of people who are more at risk. Across Devon and Somerset, the group most at risk of fire is in the 65+ age group, with around three-quarters of this group's domestic fires started by cooking. 

Distraction is a major cause of cooking fires, so busy households with children, animals (or both!) are also at a higher risk of cooking fire. You can reduce the risk of cooking fire due to distraction by using a cooking timer.

If you are worried about someone or would like to speak to a specialist about fire safety in the home call the advice line on 0800 0502 999, or to find out more about a home fire safety visit click  here
