This week is Burn Prevention week and the Fort St. John fire department wants you to be safe.

Fire Prevention Officer Captain Greg Nicoll says the department will talk to children at local schools during the routine fire inspections.

He says it is important to teach children burn prevention because they are curious about fire.

Nicoll says many burn accidents happen in the kitchen.

He says while children like cooking with their parents, the kitchen should be safe for everyone.
