Cooking Fire in Lake Villa?

10/11/2021 (Permalink)

People are cooking in a kitchen. We respond to fire damage emergencies 24-hours a day in Lake County.

According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), ranges or cook-tops account for three out of every five reported home fires involving cooking equipment. SERVPRO® of Northwest Lake County responds to fire damage emergencies 24-hours a day in Lake Villa and offers these cooking safety tips from the NFPA:

What you should know about home cooking safety
  • Be on alert! If you are sleepy or have consumed alcohol, don’t use the stove or stovetop
  • Stay in the kitchen while you are frying, grilling, boiling, or broiling food
  • If you are simmering, baking, or roasting food, check it regularly and remain in the kitchen while food is cooking
  • Keep anything that can catch fire away from your stovetop
If you have a cooking fire
  • Just get out! When you leave, close the door behind you to help contain the fire.
  • Call 9-1-1 or the local emergency number after you leave
  • If you try to fight the fire, be sure others are getting out, and you have a clear way out
  • Keep a lid nearby when you’re cooking to smother small grease fires. Smother the fire by sliding the lid over the pan and turn off the stovetop. Leave the pan covered until it is completely cooled.
  • For an oven fire, turn off the heat and keep the door closed
