A grease can get out of hand very quickly causing major kitchen damage. Use these tips to avoid grease fire damage:
Avoid being distracted when cooking - More fires are happening in the kitchen because cooking food is left unsupervised or because of a mobile device.
Heating up oil takes patience -Let it heat slowly to the desired temperature.
Have baking soda close by - Pouring baking soda on the fire can help keep the flames from spreading.
Cover the pan with a lid - Covering the hot oil with a lid will extinguish the fire because it starves it of oxygen.
