Cooking Oil Ignites and Starts a Fire in Moose Lake Kitchen?

10/3/2023 (Permalink)

A cooking fire spreads flames rapidly throughout a kitchen. We are leaders in fire damage restoration services in Carlton County.

October is Residential Fire Awareness Month, dedicated to raising fire safety awareness to ensure homes and families are protected. Our local Aitkin, Carlton, and West St. Louis Counties team responds to fire damage emergencies every year in Moose Lake and sometimes they involve cooking fires. Here are some tips from the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) to help people cook with oil safely:

Safety considerations for cooking with oil
  • Always stay in the kitchen when frying on the stovetop
  • Keep an eye on what you fry. If you see wisps of smoke or the oil smells, immediately turn off the burner and/or carefully remove the pan from the burner. Smoke is a danger sign that the oil is too hot.
  • Heat the oil slowly to the temperature you need for frying or sautéing.
  • Add food gently to the pot or pan so the oil does not splatter.
  • Always cook with a lid beside your pan. If you have a fire, slide the lid over the pan and turn off the burner. Do not remove the cover because the fire could start again. Let the pan cool for a long time. Never throw water on the fire.
  • If the fire does not go out or you don’t feel comfortable sliding a lid over the pan, get everyone out of your home. Call the fire department from outside.
