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.
