Types Of Fires Which Can Arise From Kitchen
Time is​ money in​ today’s world .​
And because of​ this it​ is​ a​ common to​ see people rushing from one place to​ another .​
In this rush, jobs are usually left incomplete, especially things are forgotten on a​ burning stove .​
Only when smoke begins to​ arise or​ a​ fire starts, attention is​ grabbed .​
If there is​ someone present in​ the house at​ the very moment, he will react instantaneously .​
But suppose if​ no one is​ at​ home and the pan is​ still burning on the stove, it​ is​ only when you return home will you find out about the incidence .​
If you are lucky, the neighbors will notice the smoke or​ the fire coming out of​ the house and will report to​ the fire department .​
There are different kind of​ fires which can start in​ the kitchen and each one needs a​ different approach to​ handle it .​
Out of​ all, the most common type of​ fire which can start in​ kitchen is​ dry cooking fire .​
This type of​ fire starts from the residue of​ the liquid that boils out of​ pan .​
Food residue that dry out on the stove top catches fire and begins to​ smoke .​
Dry cooking fire isn’t dangerous but the heat produced by it​ can damage the area around it​ and the smoke can leave a​ bad odor and a​ tough residue .​
Cleaning the stove top regularly is​ a​ good habit to​ prevent this kind of​ fire.
When greasy or​ oily foods are ignited then grease fire occurs .​
This type of​ fire is​ very dangerous .​
The flames of​ grease fire can rise and reach out to​ the cabinets or​ the surrounding combustible items .​
And if​ this fire isn’t taken care of​ within a​ given time period, it​ can grow into a​ big house fire .​
It will not only burn the entire kitchen, but the neighboring rooms as​ well as​ the attic of​ the house .​
Grease fire can be big threat to​ the life of​ the people present in​ the house at​ the time of​ fire .​
If the fire is​ small, different techniques can be used to​ put out the fire .​
First is​ to​ cut the supply of​ oxygen by covering the fire with a​ lid .​
Pouring huge amount of​ baking soda is​ another good idea .​
Baking soda also acts a​ good fire extinguisher .​
When the fire stops, it​ is​ very important to​ turn off the stove, in​ order to​ avoid any further damage .​
But if​ the fire is​ too high, it​ is​ better to​ seek for help .​
Because if​ you try to​ handle the fire yourself, you can face the risk of​ getting burned .​
Another important point to​ remember is​ never to​ use water to​ put out grease fire .​
This will cause the grease to​ splatter, increase the fire size .​
This also increases the risk of​ getting burned .​
Fires arising from the oven are called as​ oven fires .​
Many a​ times this kind of​ fire isn’t very serious .​
Oven fires starts in​ oven, which is​ constructed in​ such a​ way to​ deal with high heat .​
Since the supply of​ air is​ insufficient in​ the oven, the oven fire gets easily extinguished because of​ lack of​ sufficient oxygen .​
These are the different types of​ fires which can start in​ the kitchen .​
The first step to​ be taken in​ case of​ any fire is​ to​ evacuate the place as​ soon as​ possible .​
Everyone should be asked to​ leave the place and children especially should be escorted out of​ that place .​
The next important step is​ to​ call the fire department and report about the fire .​
If the fire is​ small, a​ fire extinguisher can be used to​ put out the fire .​
Therefore, it​ is​ necessary to​ keep a​ fire extinguisher and a​ fire blanket in​ the kitchen .​
But if​ the fire is​ spreading rapidly and is​ getting out of​ control, it​ is​ better to​ get out and wait for help .​
A stitch in​ time saves nine .​
So it​ is​ always better to​ clean the stove top regularly and to​ cook greasy and oily food on a​ low flame .​
Always keep distance from the burner and avoid wearing loose and synthetic clothes .​
