Weston Blog Offers Fire Prevention Tips

WESTON, Conn. – The local blog Moms in Weston is offering tips on how to prevent house fires after the horrific Christmas Day blaze that killed two adults and three children in Stamford.

“We can certainly learn from this incident and prevent house fires in our own homes. This type of accidental fire has occurred in our neck of the woods in the past and it can be prevented,” the blog states.

The blog offered the following tips on fire prevention:

  • Replace batteries of smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors regularly (for example, with daylight savings time changes).
  • Fireplace ashes and embers are flammable for 72 hours; dispose properly (do not remove while hot).
  • Fire extinguishers should be kept visible and accessible. Learn how to use them.
  • Avoid overloading outlets.
  • Plan escape route and review with all members of the family.
