Fire Department produces new cooking safety video

Most house fires start in the kitchen, and the number one cause of cooking fires is inattention. In an effort to help residents prevent cooking fires and extinguish them quickly if they do occur, the Bellevue Fire Department has released a new video -- "Preventing Home Cooking Fires." Still photograph from filming of "Preventing Home Cooking Fires."

Hosted by Fire Chief Mario Treviño, "Home Cooking" illustrates what can happen all too easily when distractions come into play while dinner is being prepared. "Home Cooking" is the second video from the Fire Department focusing on an aspect of fire prevention. The first one, "Permits," was released last fall.  

"We wanted to reach more people with our message," said fire education coordinator Kathy Barker. "A series of 10-minute videos will cover a variety of fire prevention subjects, including cooking fire safety, fire permits and preventable responses."

To ensure the instructions reaching a broad audience, the fire department is having some of the videos translated into Spanish and Russian. 

To view all of the videos when they become available and to learn more about fire prevention, you can visit the fire prevention section of the city website.
