Important Video about Kitchen Fire Safety
READ BEFORE YOU WATCH THE VIDEO!!!
This is a dramatic video (30-second, very short) about how to deal with a
common kitchen fire ....oil in a frying pan. Read the following
Introduction, then watch the show ...It's a real eye-opener!!!
Water, being heavier than oil, sinks to the bottom where it instantly
becomes superheated. The explosive force of the steam blows the
burning oil up and out. In the open field, it became a thirty foot high
fireball that resembles a nuclear blast. Inside the confines of a kitchen,
the fire ball hits the ceiling and fills the entire room. Also, do not
throw sugar or flour on a grease fire. One cup of either creates the
force of two sticks of dynamite.
