The Washington State Fire Marshal’s Office (SFMO) supports this campaign and reminds residents to never leave cooking food unattended. Stay in the kitchen while you are frying, grilling, or broiling. If you have to leave, even for a short time, turn off the stove.  If you are baking or roasting, check it regularly and stay home or turn off the oven if you have to leave.
