Stovetop Fire Stop Puts Out Kitchen Blaze
DAYTON -- A local family is forced from their home Sunday after a fire broke out. But firefighters aren't taking credit for putting out the flames. They say an extinguisher in a small canister above the stove beat them to it.
The suppression canisters are called StoveTop FireStop Venthoods. They have a small magnet on them that attaches to the top of your stove and acts as a fire extinguisher in case of a fire.
Dayton District Fire Chief Barry Baldwin says that's the device that stopped the kitchen fire from spreading.
According to FEMA, cooking equipment like stove tops are the number one reason for house fires and injuries.
We talked to a local woman who says she's always prepared.
"We have a fire extinguisher under our sink, right across from the stove. We've never needed it," said Patty Caldwell.
Baldwin says the canister has a small fuse in it and opens when it heats up and drops out a dry chemical, "I do recommend it. I will recommend it to more people once I've seen it in action," said Baldwin.
We found the devices run around $50. You can purchase them online or we found them at a Lowe's in Xenia.

Stovetop Fire Stop Puts Out Kitchen Blaze
DAYTON -- The Dayton Fire Department responded to an apartment complex for a structure fire Sunday afternoon.
Firefighters were called to the Eagle Ridge Apartment Complex off Needmore Road.
When firefighters arrived they had a small kitchen fire. They say it appears the fire was put out by fire extinguisher containers which were placed over the stove.
The Fire district chief says the containers were activated when the fire started and did its job.
He says he would recommend the magnetic containers to homeowners.
We're told the woman thought she turned the stove off when she left the house but says she's had stove problems recently.
There were reports of a child trapped upstairs but firefighters tell us they did a search of the home and no one was inside.
It appears the fire caused around $5,000 in damage.
The family is unable to stay in the apartment.
