Do You Know How to React to a Kitchen Fire in Your Buda Home?

2/17/2022 (Permalink)

Large flames are rising from inside a chrome pan on a kitchen stove burner.

Fire makes people react more frantic than any other emergency. However, if you are equipped with a few basic tactics, you'll reduce that panic and respond effectively if a kitchen fire were to happen in your Buda Texas home. 

React fast: 

  • Unplug the cord and use a dry chemical fire extinguisher or pour baking soda into the toaster if it's a toaster fire. 
  • If it's a stovetop fire, turn off the burner and smother the flames by dousing them with baking soda or putting the lid on the pan.
  • If it's an oven fire, the most dangerous thing you can do is open the door. Just leave the oven door closed and turn off the heat to the oven. The fire will eventually smother itself.

The biggest mistake you can make is using water to put out a grease fire. It can splash the burning grease and cause burns. Another safety tip is never to carry a burning pan outside. It can cause a full-scale house fire if flaming grease spills and ignites something else.
