Kitchen Fires

Keeping your home hazard-free

Kitchen Fires

  • Every year without fail, personnel and spouses are injured in kitchen fires, triggered when they overheat grease while frying food.

  • Grease fires are extremely dangerous because the burning grease is easily spilled, which spreads the flames to curtains or cabinets.

  • According to the National Fire Protection Association, unattended cooking is the leading cause of home cooking fires. Stay by the stove and be prepared for flames.

  • Don’t use water on a grease fire. It won’t put it out, but instead, will cause it to splash and spread. It will also produce dangerous steam.

Kitchen Fires

  • Get everyone out of the building. Fires spread extremely quickly and can overwhelm victims in minutes.

  • Call 911. The fire department can always go back to the station if you are able to get the fire out without help.

  • The easiest way to smother a grease fire is to cover it with a pan lid, preferably metal. Glass lids can break from the extreme heat of open flame.

  • Grease fires can also be smothered with baking soda, but it takes a lot of baking soda to do the trick. Unless the baking soda is easily accessible, it's usually easier to quickly find a lid.

Kitchen Fires

  • A dry chemical fire extinguisher will also work, but it will contaminate your kitchen and food.

  • Don’t try to carry the fire outside.

  • You can also spray the fire with a Class B dry chemical fire extinguisher. Note that this method will ruin the food and contaminate dishes and utensils.

  • Carefully slide a lid over the pan. Turn off the burner, don't move the pan, and keep the lid on until the pan cools completely.
