According to the National Fire Prevention Association, between 2007-2011 U.S. Fire Departments responded to an estimated annual average of 156,600 cooking-related fires, resulting in 400 civilian deaths, 5,080 civilian injuries and $853 million in direct damage. 

The leading cause of kitchen fires is unattended cooking. Most kitchen fires involve the cooktop.
Stay in the kitchen while you are cooking. If you must leave for a short period of time, turn off your stove.
Keep anything that can catch fire away from the stovetop; i.e., oven mitts, food packaging, towels, wooden spoons, 
Have a kid-free zone of at least 3 feet around the stove and other cooking areas.
Keep a fire extinguisher in your kitchen.

If you have a kitchen fire or any other kind of fire, just get out! Then call 911.
