Prevent Oven Fires
Be sure to remove any food or grease that spills inside the oven.
If there is a fire in the oven, turn off the oven and allow the fire to die down before opening the oven door.
After extinguishing the fire, be sure to relight the pilot flame or shut off the gas to the appliance.
If a fire breaks out in a microwave oven, keep the door closed and unplug the unit. Don't try to remove burning containers from a microwave.
