More fires occur on Thanksgiving Day than on any other day of the year. Most of these Thanksgiving fires start as kitchen fires.
The use of fire pits, chimeneas and portable heating devices that use solid, liquid or gas fuels is prohibited in the City of Cambridge.
Kitchen fires are a leading cause of home fires, and unattended cooking fires are the leading cause of kitchen fires. This year's Fire Prevention Week campaign works to educate everyone about simple but important actions they can take to keep themselves and those around them safe when cooking in the kitchen.
