A very sad story came out of Rockland, MA this week. Mary Gammon, age 71 tragically lost her life. This accident happened as a result of her cooking, and it ended with her death. State Fire Marshal Stephen D. Coan said that, “elderly people are at greater risk for injuries from cooking fires.”
It is an important reminder of how safety must be of the utmost concern when we are cooking. It is especially sad that this story happened so soon after Fire Prevention Week. For the full story please read this article in the Patriot Ledger.
