    Fire at my house....

    last night my cooker caught fire and we had to get the firemen out to put it out, the grill was left on whilst i was cooking something on the hob and the grease opn the grillpan got too hot and set alight.
    luckily only the cooker was damaged and me, rob and all the animals are fine

    most of the windows were open due to the weather but we opened them wider after the firemen advised us to do so, i left one room with the window open and the door shut where all the animals were and told them this, they had no objections to this and were quite interested in what animals i had.

    Re: Fire at my house....

    We had a fire at our house two new years eves ago. (Put more kerosine into the burner at the bottom of a fondue while it was still warm) My dad put it out with a fire extinguisher, but it burnt all our cupboards and the plastic light cover above. Because he used the fire extinuguisher, it left white dust all over our house, and we tried to clean it ourselves, but we had to get a company that specializes in cleaning after fires to clean. The dust had got into the vents and everything, so it spread all over the place!

    Glad your okay!

    Re: Fire at my house....

    Im not sure what i would do if i had a pan of grease that cought fire except panic.

    If its a small fire are you supposed to turn the heat off, then get a dam towel and put it over the pan ?

    Im glad you and your family and your house if fine.

    A Greece Fire your suposed to smother it (cover it) using either a lid or baking soda. and I know that your not supposed to use water on greece and electrical fires. You could get hurt much worse if you did.

    Re: Fire at my house....

    a damp towel would have worked but the grill pan was inside the cooker and wasnt possible to get it out without either burning out hands or having the towel catch fire and also because of the grease and electric water wasnt an option.

    rob has a fear of fire also and wasnt exactly calm when it happened, i just told him to leave it alone, go outside and wait for the firemen to come

    WOW close call Karoline. Lucky you caught it in time as fire's in the home are swift and deadly. We have had quite a few death's here in Australia through house fire's. I alway's keep a fire extinguisher in my home and smoke detector's are a must have by law now in every home that's built in Australia. It's good to here that everyone's safe and well.
