Cooking fires – an update from Oxfordshire Fire & Rescue Service

All it takes is one distraction

Did you know that 1 in 3 people rescued from house fires in Oxfordshire are rescued from cooking fires? Or that distraction is the main cause of cooking fires?

It’s easy to get distracted – the phone rings, someone’s at the door or a TV show catches your attention. If you need to leave your cooking, even for a couple of minutes:

*   turn down the heat
*   set the timer
*   or ask someone to watch it for you

Or you could find that Oxfordshire Fire & Rescue Service firefighters join you for dinner!
