As a nice wrap up to Fire Prevention Week with an emphasis on preventing kitchen fires, The Nap Time Reviewer posted a wonderful blog article by our own Paul Rouse about the dangers of hotel and motel fires. Every year there are almost 4,000 hotel and motel fires reported to U.S. fire departments, resulting in $76 million in property loss, according to the U.S. Fire Administration. Almost 50 percent of these fires are started by cooking. Since Paul started in the fire prevention business years ago, many positive changes have been made to make hotel and motel kitchens safer, but fires still do happen.
