NASHVILLE – As football fans gather to watch the Big Game this Sunday, the State Fire Marshal’s Office offers Tennesseans essential tips to keep the firefighters from crashing your viewing party. “Sunday’s championship game is the second biggest day for food consumption in the U.S.,” Commerce & Insurance Commissioner and State Fire Marshal Julie Mix McPeak said. “For many, it means a lot of time spent in the kitchen preparing game day snacks. We’re encouraging Tennesseans to brush up on basic kitchen fire safety tips when planning the menu for this weekend’s game.” According to the U.S. Fire Administration, cooking fires are the number one cause of home fires and home fire injuries nationwide, with home fires more likely to start in the kitchen than any other room. Before kicking off your football watch party, make sure your game plan is fire-safe. For more on kitchen fire safety, go online to tn.gov.
