Rob Allport, watch manager at Huntingdon Fire Station, urged residents not to leave cooking unattended.
He said: "You are more likely to have a fire in your kitchen than any other room in the house, which is why it is so important to do all you can to stay safe.
"After you have finished cooking ensure that all appliances, including the oven are off.
"Also, ensure that you have a working smoke alarm, so that if you do forget, you will have early warning to a fire, minimising any damage and risk to life.
