It's 'Fire Prevention Week' and in Loudoun County fire crews are opening up their houses to help educate people on fire safety.

Fire stations across the county are open this week with special events planned in the effort to show residents how best to prevent a fire. There are things you can do at home to help including setting the hot water temperature no higher than 120 degrees, have a 'kid-free' zone around the stove and try to wear short or close-fitting sleeves when cooking.

For more information in visiting your local fire house, call Loudoun County Fire and Prevention.
