Grease Fire- According to Fire and Rescue.

  1. Cover the flames with a metal lid or cookie sheet. Leave the cover on until it has cooled.
  2. Turn off the heat source. 
  3. If it’s small and manageable, pour baking soda or salt on it to smother the fire.
  4. As a last resort, spray the fire with a Class B dry chemical fire extinguisher.
  5. Do not try to extinguish the fire with water.
  6. Do not attempt to move the pot or pan outside.

Do not use flour, baking powder, or other cooking powders that resemble baking soda - they have a different chemical makeup and will not react similarly. They will make the fire worse.


  1. GET OUT! 
  2. Close the door as you leave to help contain the fire.
  3. Call 911 as soon as you are at a safe distance from the fire. 
  4. Do not re-enter your home until the fire has been contained by firefighters.
