Preventing kitchen fires is the focus of this year's fire prevention week.
Mayor Chris Beutler signed a proclamation declaring October 6-12 as prevention week.
Lincoln will have a city-wide fire drill on Wednesday Oct. 9 at 6 p.m.
Fire companies across the city will be stationed in front of stations sounding air horns as a call for all residents to test their smoke alarms and practice their fire escape plans.
This year there is an emphasis on kitchen fires, one of the most preventable fires according to Inspector Bill Moody.
Moody says kitchen fires account for a large portion of the fires LFR responds to locally.
