The Corpus Christi Fire Department will be holding a demonstration on preventing kitchen fires as it kicks of Fire Prevention Month on Oct. 2.

This year's slogan for Fire Prevention Month is "Prevent Kitchen Fires".

The National Fire Protection Association states that thirty percent of home fires start in the kitchen, making cooking fires the number one cause of home fires or home fire injuries in the United States.

The CCPD will be on hand at Del Mar College West Campus Fire Drill Field, located at Airport Rd. and Old Brownsville Rd, to illustrate the proper way to prevent, put out, and stay safe from kitchen fires.

The demonstration will take place Wednesday, Oct. 2 at 11:00 a.m.
