Fire Prevention Week Broadcasts 07 Oct 13

It’s Fire Prevention Week, and the theme this year is “Prevent Kitchen Fires.” Cooking accidents are among the top causes of fires in Minnesota, with more than half of all house fires beginning in the kitchen. Cooking fires killed 1 person and injured 42 in our state last year, and the Red Cross says the best way to keep from being hurt is to “Keep An Eye On What You Fry.” We’ll be broadcasting from area fire departments throughout the week to focus on fire safety. Today (MON), KNUJ’s Brian Filzen will be in Buffalo Lake beginning at around 1:40pm. On Tuesday Mike Lemmer broadcasts from the Lamberton Fire Department, Brian will be in Hamburg on Wednesday, Todd Olson travels to Hanska on Thursday, and Mike will meet with Lafayette firefighters on Friday.
