Firefighters Team Up to Spread Fire Awareness

Posted: Updated:

Fires are one of the leading causes of death across the country. To help raise awareness in the community, firefighters from the Minot Fire Department and the Minot Air Force Base teamed up for  National Fire Awareness Week.

All week, firefighters in the Minot area will be educating both parents and their children about the importance of fire safety at the Dakota Square Mall near JcPenney's. This year's theme is staying safe in the kitchen.

"People fall into the same routine and just because it hasn't happened, just because you left a candle on as you went into the garage to get something, it doesn't mean that nothing happened and doesn't mean it won't happen the next time," says fire inspector Brian Andersen.

Andersen says there haven't been any fire fatalities in Minot since 2007.
