    When i was little (about 11), i left a pot of oil on the stove, i remember smelling smoke and sure enough there were flames pouring out of the saucepan. I picked it up and threw it out into the backyard, and then i got the hose and tried to put it out… Let’s just say my eyebrows took a while to grow back.. Massive fireball.

    But hey, at least the house didn’t burn down!

    Turn heat off, put lid it on pot and fire goes out. Let it cool gown before trying to handle. Was a firefighter for years.

    If I’m not mistaken, the reason this happens is that water is denser than the grease. Because of this, it sinks down, heating up the whole way, until it boils vigorously, sending bubbles of air up, which carry the grease out of the pot, equally vigorously. Because more of the grease is now exposed to air, it burns that much more violently.

    I fucked up like this cooking one time. Pot caught fire, and I freaked out cuz my dad was watching TV in the other room and I didn’t want him to find out that a pot is on fire in the kitchen, and my mom was going to be home soon. I knew water was no good, and my idiot brain didnt want to use a fire extinguisher, so I grabbed the handle, fought the curtains covering the back door to not catch fire while I walked it outside, set it down on the back concrete and let it burn itself out. After a while I doused it in water and threw it away in the trash. Got a call from my mom a few days later asking why one of her pots was in the trash and was blacker than sin. Didn’t make a lot of smart moves that night

    Looks like a U.K. fire station giving school kids lessons on putting out fires.
    What I learnt as a kid on one of these trips has saved my butt at least once.
    Oil fire? Turn heat off, if possible throw a damp (not wet) teatowel over it.
    Leave the area, call fire brigade.

    We also got to sit in the engines too for being excellent fire putter outers.
    Much better than my schools version of fire safety that terrified every child.
    Nothing like hearing a story about a doll who cries wolf, sets a fire in her house but no one comes to help her. Then 30 five year olds watch the doll in her bed in her doll house burn to the ground.
    Cheers Mrs Coats.

    When I was a kid working at McDonald’s I crash tackled my manager as she was about to throw a bucket of water at a fry vat that caught fire. One of the other kids just put the lid on it. She really had no idea at the time that we just saved her life.
    EDIT: typo. wrote ‘put the kid on it’

    I was a single mom with young kids (they were about 5 and 3 at the time) and my parents and I took them to a firehouse for a family day— meet the firefighters, climb on the trucks, etc.

    They did a demonstration about how to properly use a fire extinguisher— similar to this gif, but without the huge flame-up— and asked for a volunteer.

    I thought it would be a *great* opportunity for me to show my kids that I was strong and capable and they could count on their mom in a scary situation. There I am, extinguisher in hand, following the firefighter’s instructions as he explains the process. I look at my kids and they are both SOBBING in my parents’ arms, absolutely terrified that Mom is near the fire.

    My effort kind of backfired, no pun intended 😉

    Why is one firefighter less then 5ft away from the pot when the firefighter pouring the water is using a ~20ft pole to pour the water?

    When I was 15 my twin sister started an oil fire but frying something, she went to the toilet while it was frying and it go too hot and caught on fire.

    My sisters initial reaction was to dump water on it and got a similar type of reaction to this gif. She came screaming to me on the computer. She called 000 and the instructions were to basically leave the house and wait for the fire brigade, so she got the cat and went to the drive way.

    Now at this point in my life, I’ve worked for several years as a cook in the fast food industry, and I must’ve heard a 1,000 times about how to put out an oil fire. But when you’re standing there and there’s a giant flame eating your exhaust hood and the adrenaline is going, your brain just doesn’t work properly.

    I actually ended up sitting back down on my computer and googling “how to put out an oil fire” and saw those words which triggered my memory; cut off the oxygen.

    So I ran back to the kitchen and managed to get the pot lid back on the pot which cut off the fire. Fire brigade came and checked out the roof, was pretty burnt up and said the roof insulation would have caught on fire after another couple minutes.

    My dad joked that he wished I let the place burn down for insurance, which in retrospection probably would have been nice, we ended up losing the house anyway.

    My parents took us to a Fireman’s Open House when I was about 5. They did this same demonstration, but I didn’t understand that it was only grease that this happened to. A few years later, I was at camp and the counselor went to put out the camp fire and I completely panicked and started screaming not to put water on it and almost had a mental breakdown.

    This is how my childhood home essentially burnt down (entire inside was fucked). We were renting it out and even though there were 2 fire extinguishers in the kitchen specifically for this reason – the lady dumped it into the sink, turned the water on and all hell broke loose. She nearly died in the house from smoke inhalation trying to put it out WITH MORE WATER.

    I once set the oil in a wok on fire. I knew you were supposed to dampen a tea towel and get it over the flames to put it out. I couldn’t however get it over without burning myself as the flames were quite high. Ended up soaking a tea towel and chucking it into the wok. Destroyed the work, the tea towel and seared a bit of the kitchen ceiling. God the smell, my mother was not happy.

    Firefighter here, you’d be surprised how many people actually do this, resulting in destroying the whole house. We used to say wet and wring a tea towel and cover the pan to starve it of oxygen, but people were burning themselves (understandably). Now we just tell them to get out and call the emergency services and let us deal with it.

    Edit: typos

    A friend of mine threw water on a grease fire when a pot on her stove broke. Her mom had run to the store for an ingredient and she didn’t know. That caused it to spread everywhere the water went. It burned her house down and her dog died by smoke inhalation (No people were hurt). This was the day before her high school graduation. Extremely sad story. Do not throw water on a grease fire.

    Yeah because the water go straight to the bottom of the pan and super boils straight to steam causing the oil to be dispersed and ignited

    The science behind it is also very interesting. Water is denser than oil, it hit said oil, flash boils from the heat, and then carries droplets of on fire oil out with the steam

    I did this once. Lol. In my kitchen. I knew not to do it before I did it. And I still did it. My gut kept saying “BITCH PUT OUT THE FIRE. YOU’RE GONNA BURN DOWN THE HOUSE.” My brain kept saying “Bitch don’t you use water.” My gut said I was gonna die and to put the fire out. So I filled up a big cup of water and poured it right onto the grease fire. I got lucky. It shot up but didn’t spread. I moved the pot to the sink, somehow, and covered it with a lid. I’ll never go shit that again. I still F with fried chicken wings, though.

    I wonder what the minimum threshold for putting out grease fires wth water is. I can’t imagine 50 gallons of water not doing the trick.

    Sinks should not be located next to stoves. It’s too easy to panic and make this mistake.
