Thanksgiving Holiday Kitchen Fire Safety

The Thanksgiving holiday is upon us and Berwyn families will be coming together for a time of celebration and thankfulness. The hours spent in the kitchen preparing turkey, mashed potatoes, pies and all the other fixings, however, comes with an increased risk for household fires. The Berwyn Fire Department would like to remind you of the importance of taking safety precautions to ensure a safe and happy Thanksgiving holiday. Cooking is, and has long been, the leading cause of home structure fires and home fire injuries, and according to statistics, home cooking fires increase significantly around the times of major holidays.
