LA CROSSE, Wis. (WXOW) — Thanksgiving can be one of the most dangerous times of the year when it comes to the chance of a kitchen fire. Luckily, students at Longfellow Middle School got to spend the morning learning about fire safety.
The La Crosse Police Department going over the fire triangle. Showing them how it takes heat, oxygen and fuel to start a fire. Then showing them, in a variety of ways, how to extinguish one.
“I really hope that these students, as they’re coming into young adulthood, really start thinking about that fires a tool and it’s something that we need, but it’s something we need to be really careful about,” said Molly McCormick with the LCFD.
“Understanding how it works, helps us to make better choices and not only keeps our family safe, it keeps our community safe too.”
6th and 8th graders will spend tomorrow making pumpkin pies for the La Crosse community thanksgiving dinner.
