Kitchen Fire Safety Tips
If the lid to your pan is handy use it to cover the flames and suffocate the fire. Give the pan a chance to cool down before you move it as movement may cause it to re-ignite.
Baking soda is the best defense against small kitchen fires-simply throw baking soda at the base of the flame. Be cautions when throwing baking soda at grease as splashing could result in severe burns.
Keep the number to the local fire department handy and teach everyone in the family where it is. Call them immediately if you even suspect you can’t control the fire.
