Preventing Restaurant Fires -- When Grease Is The (Bad) Word
Hot oil. Grease buildup. Open flames. Rushed employees. It's not surprising that restaurants are often the scene of fires. In fact, between 2011 and 2013, there were approximately 5,600 restaurant fires reported. And these fires can be extremely costly. Those 5,600 fires, for instance, cost about $116 million in property damage, and that's not even accounting for any revenue that may have been lost while the businesses were closed for repairs.
