JACKSON, Tenn. — Local fire officials are bringing awareness to the importance of staying alert with Burn Awareness Week. Experts say 70 to 80 percent of all house fires are cooking related. This week also sheds light on hot liquid scalds, which most commonly afflict children younger than five. Burn awareness week ends Saturday.
