It started as a commemoration of the Great Chicago Fire, but now National Fire Prevention Week has taken on a whole new meaning to keep you safe.
National Fire Prevention week runs from October 6-12. This year's theme and message deals with "Kitchen Fires".
For more information on fire safety contact Dallas Fire-Rescue of your local fire department.
Sal Morales with Dallas Fire-Rescue talked about the week and his team of colleagues showed off their strength during a fire truck pull in front of GMT studios.
