Henny the Arson Dog and her handler Seattle Fire Captain Steve Baer will help kick off Fire Prevention Month on Sunday at the Museum of History and Industry on Sunday.

Henny and Captain Baer will demonstrate how she uncovers evidence at arson scenes. The black lab has been used at more than 130 fire investigations during the past five years in both Seattle and neighboring jurisdictions.

Seattle Fire and MOHAI are hosting a special program that includes a variety of activities for kids, including a home fire evacuation obstacle course that teaches kids how to crawl low below smoke and heat, as well as how to get out and stay out if they experience a home fire.

Kids will also learn to choose an outdoor meeting place with their family and at that meeting place, how to call 911 and give emergency dispatchers important information they need to provide help.

Everyone will also get a chance to tour The Great Seattle Fire Exhibit that includes the infamous glue pot that supposedly started the massive blaze of 1889 that destroyed 25 city blocks.

The event is from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at MOHAI at 2700 24th Ave. E. Admission is free.
