In the kitchen
The heart of the home, kitchens are also the most common spot in the house for fires to start. Specifically, unattended cooking is the leading cause of kitchen fires and fire-related injuries. Additionally, kitchen fires can start from grease fires while cooking or electrical malfunctions. These man-made fires are also easily preventable: Keep an eye on the stove, oven, and other appliances like toaster ovens, and move combustible items away from the stove. Never leave the kitchen unattended when you are cooking, or have a number of appliances plugged in and operating at the same time.

In the bedroom
In the bedroom is where a lot of electrical fires can start. These fires are often due to faulty or overtaxed wiring or malfunctioning lighting, but bedroom fires also start with cords, space heaters, or electric blankets.
