Cooking Fire Statistics for Spring Valley

SERVPRO® of Spring Valley/Jamul responds to fire damage emergencies in the Spring Valley area throughout the year, and we know that even a small kitchen fire can cause smoke and soot damage. According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) home cooking fires:

  • Ranges or cooktops were involved in the 61 percent of reported home cooking fires, 87 percent of cooking fire deaths and 78 percent of cooking fire injuries
  • Households that use electric ranges have a higher risk of cooking fires and associated losses than those using gas ranges
  • Unattended cooking was the leading cause of cooking fires and casualties. Clothing was the item first ignited in less than 1 percent of these fires, but clothing ignitions led to 8 percent of the home cooking fire deaths

Here are some tips from the NFPA for small grease cooking fires if you decide to fight the fire:

  • On the stovetop, smother the flames by sliding a lid over the pan and turning off the burner
  • Leave the pan covered until it is completely cooled
  • For an oven fire, turn off the heat and keep the door closed
