Tips to Put Out Fires in the Kitchen Safely in Naples

Person holding a skillet on the stove with a small fire starting Please practice fire safety in the Kitchen.

SERVPRO of East Naples understands that over half of home fires start in the kitchen. Some kitchen fires start out small enough that you might be able to put them out easily. By being proactive, you can save yourself and others from fire and smoke injuries in your Naples home.

Remember that fire is fast. If you cannot contain a fire immediately, leave and bring everyone with you. Call 9-1-1 from outside the home.

SERVPRO of East Naples has these tips to offer for handling a small cooking fire:

  • If the fire is on the stove top or in a pot, put a lid on the fire to smother the flames. Turn off the burner
  • If a cloth on the stove top is on fire, put a lid on the fire to smother the flames. Turn off any burners 
  • Do not use water on a gas fire or a grease fire. Pot lids will smother a fire. You can also use (a lot of) baking soda. Pour a box of baking soda on the fire
  • If the fire is in the oven, turn off the heat. Close the oven door.

IMPORTANT:

Never leave fire-fighting to chance. SERVPRO of East Naples knows that objects can be replaced.  People and pets cannot.
