center_img According to the State Fire Marshal’s office almost 75% of the state’s total reported residential structure fires are caused by cooking and heating-related incidents. Dan Grimes Deputy Fire Chief with Central Emergency Services reminds everyone that unattended cooking fires are one of Alaska’s leading causes of residential fires:  “We hope that people will be safe this holiday season. We’re looking for people to be very careful with their deep fryers, if they are thinking about deep frying one of those beautiful turkeys on Thanksgiving. We hope people will pay attention to their ovens, keep things safe, and a watchful eye.” last_img
