Check temperature: Never eat, drink, or carry anything hot near the baby or while you are holding the baby. Turn your water heater down to 120°f (50°c). Install smoke detectors. Keep a fire extinguisher in or near the kitchen.

Fire/burns exposure : try to eliminate exposures to hot devices, i.e. oven, cooktop, irons, hair dryers, etc.
No candle exposures, fireplaces or exposure to smoke in general (smoking).
