Cooking fires are the #1 cause of home fires, so when you make the Thanksgiving feast, think safety first.
Stafford County Assistant Fire Chief Mark Doyle says avoid cooking in a robe or pjs, that can drag on the stove. And don't walk away with anything on the burners. Nearly all kitchen fires start on the stove, spreading to cabinets, clothes, paper and curtains.
