Tualatin Valley Fire and Rescue is taking steps to stop the biggest cause of residential fires, that’s kitchen fires. TVFNR installed 84 stove top fire stops at a Tiger department complex today, and they also showed how it worked. The 12 ounce automatic fire extinguisher attaches magnetically under the vent hood of a stove top, when a fire ignites and the flames reached the device, fire suppressing powder is released.
