How many people have to die before people realize you can’t ever leave a pan or pot unattended on the stove.
This week, it cost a 10 year old boy his life when a kitchen fire erupted in his Scarborough townhouse.
“Preliminary findings indicate the fire originated in the kitchen, on the stove, and then extended up the staircase to the second floor — trapping the victims on the second floor and blocking their escape down the stairs, said the fire marshal.”
“Unattended cooking is the leading source of ignition in home fires and the second leading source in fatal fires,”
If they had spent $69 on a StoveTop FireStop this would never have happened. Thats less than $0.04 cents per day!
