The first line of defense against a fire is prevention. Make sure appliances not in use are unplugged. Pay special attention while cooking in the kitchen, as appliances or unattended food can start a fire. If you smoke, do it outside and extinguish all open flames before heading in, especially in dry weather. If you’re having an outdoor fire, wet down the surrounding area so stray embers don’t ignite. Finally, smoke detectors can serve as an early warning system, and a fire extinguisher can be used in the event of a small fire to prevent its spread.
