Kitchen on Fire

I received this mail from my friend Simon this morning and I simply have to share it. A similar accident happened to me some time back but it was not in the kitchen. I did exactly what this video recommended not to do. Anyway, I reckon that most of you who visit here are likely to spend a lot of time in the kitchen.

Read first, - then watch attachment !
I never realized that a wet dishcloth can be a one size fits all lid to cover a fire in a pan!
This is a dramatic video (30-second, very short) about how to deal with a common kitchen fire ... oil in a frying pan.

Read the following Introduction, then watch the show ....
It's a real eye-opener!!
At the Fire Fighting Training school they would demonstrate this with a deep fat fryer set on the fire field.
An instructor would don a fire suit and using an 8 oz cup at the end of a10 foot pole toss water onto the grease fire.
The result s got the attention of the students.

The water, being heavier than oil, sinks to the bottom where it instantly becomes superheated.
The explosive force of the steam blows the burning oil up and out.

On the open field, it became a thirty foot high fireball that resembled a nuclear blast.
Inside the confines of a kitchen, the fire ball hits the ceiling and fills the entire room.
Also, do not throw sugar or flour on a grease fire.
One cup creates the explosive force of two sticks of dynamite.

This is a powerful Message----watch the video and don't forget what you see.-
