GOLDEN, Colo. (KDVR) — The Colorado Division of Fire Prevention and Control (DFPC) presented a real-fire demonstration to remind people the dangers of simply preparing a meal in your kitchen.
It can happen quite literally in a flash. That’s why the DFPC teamed up with the Fairmount Fire Protection District to cook up a little demo.
“It’s important that we be safe in the kitchen,” said DFPC Section Chief Christopher Brunette.
It was the perfect place for the fire show: the Fairmount Fire Training Facility just outside Golden.
Under the watchful eyes of fire fighting professionals, fires were intentionally set in a controlled environment, all to send a message:
“Thanksgiving is our biggest day for home fires and so if we can start to illuminate those fires and teach people how to be proactive and safe in the kitchen, then we can illuminate a lot of the casualties,” Brunette said.
