Next week many folks will be cooking a bit more for the holiday. Many home fires start in the kitchen so safe cooking practices and readiness to extinguish a flash fire from a stovetop or oven can save your dinner and home. There are several techniques to stop a fire like this with the smother method. A lid, baking soda, or a fire extinguisher are all good methods for quick extinguishment of an oil or grease fire. The reason those things work so well is because WATER IS BAD ON A GREASE OR OIL FIRE! And remember to call 911 as quick as you can!
Be prepared, act quick, stay safe!
