KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WATE) – It is time now for another fire safety lesson.
Rural Metro Fire Department stopped by to give you, and especially, your kids a lesson on fire hazards.
Jeff Bagwell, with Rural Metro, says that the biggest culprit– lighters. Bagwell says to ensure children are at a far reach from any nearby lighters. Kids often confuse these devices as toys, which can lead to a very serious outcome.
Bagwell also mentions to regularly speak to your kids about fire safety and let them know the dangers lighters often come with.
