Minnesota Fire Officials Cite Unattended Cooking as a Top Cause of Fire Fatalities

Unattended cooking is now tied with careless smoking as the top cause of fire fatalities in Minnesota. Officials say unattended cooking and careless smoking both were listed as the cause of six fire deaths each in 2013. State Fire Marshal Bruce West says leaving food cooking unattended has been a leading cause of fires in general, but the jump in fatal kitchen-related fires is alarming. West has some kitchen-related fire prevention and containment tips. West also says it's important to keep cooking surfaces clean and grease away from heating surfaces. There were 44 total fire deaths in the state last year.

"The Producers" features non-stop comedy, huge musical and dance numbers complete with a full pit orchestra.
