Cooking fires are the leading cause of fire deaths
Fires beginning with cooking appliances account for the largest share of home structure fires and associated fire injuries in the United States and Canada. Electric ranges are by far the leading cause of home cooking appliance fires.
Most home cooking fires involve frying on electric ranges
Range fires were involved in 77% of home structure fire injuries involving cooking equipment and accounted for 84% of all fire deaths involving cooking appliances. Seventy-four percent of range fire injuries involve stovetop cooking, and frying accounted for 59% of range fires.
Unattended cooking is a major cause of range fires
Unattended cooking is a factor in the majority of home electric range fires. Physical conditions such as falling asleep, impairment by alcohol or drugs, or limitations of the cook due to age are all contributing factors. Distractions that pull the cook outside of the kitchen (doorbell, screaming child, social interactions) are another. Due to the nature of these behaviors, public education cannot be the sole means of addressing the cooking fire problem. An engineering solution can make it less likely that those lapses in safe behavior will result in tragedy.
