Each year, there are more than 500 residential electric stove-top fires. The results are tragic. Over the past decade, cooking fires have caused 34 fatalities.
The leading cause of these fires is leaving cooking unattended. Other causes are:
- Loose clothing and articles near the stove;
- Children playing near the stove;
- Trying to put out a grease fire with water; and
- Trying to cook while under the influence of alcohol.
