Risks of accidents in the kitchen far greater at Christmas

The risks of accidents in the kitchen are far greater at Christmas compared to other times of the year.

That’s according to the Kerry Fire Service who are warning of the possible dangers over the festive period.

Kerry’s Senior Assistant Chief Fire Officer Maurice O’Connell says it is extremely dangerous to leave anything unattended while cooking.

He is encouraging people to ensure all flammable items are kept away from heat sources.
