How to Extinguish a Stove-Top Fire
Putting out a stove-top fire can be as easy as placing a tight-fitting lid on a pot that is on fire. But if that doesn't work, use the ABC dry chemical fire extinguisher every kitchen should have nearby. This type of extinguisher will put out paper and wood combustibles, electrical and liquid fires. To use the fire extinguisher effectively, keep the acronym PASS in mind. P=Pull the Pin. A=Aim at the base of the fire. S=Squeeze the handle of the fire extinguisher. S=Sweep across the fire. If the fire is not extinguished after sweeping it with the extinguisher, immediately call the fire department and be sure that everyone exits the building. If your home does experience any damage due to fire, call the experts at SERVPRO of Vacaville to help with the restoration process.
