Not all fires are created equal, therefore not all fires can be extinguished in the same way.  Educating yourself on the proper ways to put out a small fire can not only minimize damages to your property, but it can also help keep you safe. That is why the fire experts at SERVPRO of Mount Ephraim/ Bellmawr can handle any fire from kitchen fires to commercial fires SERVPRO has you covered. Here are some tips for the most common type of fire:

How To Put Out Kitchen Fires

  • In the event of an oven or microwave fire, cut the oxygen off to the flames.  Turn off the appliance and close the door.  Keep a close watch and the flames should diminish.  Use a fire extinguisher if the flames do not die down.
  • For a cooking fire on a skillet or pot, place a lid over the flames.  loss of oxygen to fuel the flames should kill the fire rather quickly.
  • Use baking soda or salt for grease fires.  They will help absorb and smother the flames.  NEVER use water or flour on a grease fire.  Flour can potentially ignite and add fuel to the flames.  Water and oil do not mix and the water can cause the grease to spray elsewhere, throwing flaming oil on nearby surfaces.
  • ALWAYS call the fire department when dealing with an electrical fire.
