Understanding Fire Damage in Washington DC

According to the United States Fire Administration (USFA), there are some simple things we can do to prevent fire in our homes.

The (USFA) says that cooking is the number one cause of home fires.

Take these steps today to prevent a cooking fire in your home:

Stay in the kitchen when you are frying, grilling, broiling, or boiling food.

If you leave the kitchen, turn the burner off.
Keep things that can burn away from your cooking area.

Turn pot handles toward the back of the stove so they won’t get bumped.

Put working smoke alarms on every level of your home and inside and outside sleeping areas.

Test your alarms each month.

Create and practice your home fire escape plan at least twice a year.
