- Half of home fires start in the kitchen - never leave young children alone in the kitchen, take extra care when cooking with hot oil
- Cheap chemical carbon monoxide detectors should be installed wherever you have a gas appliance, this includes open gas fires. If your chimney or vents become blocked, dangerous gasses can quickly fill a room.
