Grease Fires

Grease fires are the most dangerous when it comes to cooking fires and are responsible for 1 in every 5 home fire deaths. Below are some tips on how to put out grease fires. These tips could help save your or a loved one's life. 

Putting Out a Grease Fire  

  • Turn off source of heat  
  • Do NOT pour water on it. Water and oil do not mix and when you add water it will sink right to the bottom and evaporate instantly, spreading flaming oil everywhere.  
  • Attempt to remove all oxygen from the flame. Cover with another pot or baking pan.  
  • If you cannot cover it, dump lots of baking soda on it.
