KEEP A LID ON COOKING FIRES‏!

It is strongly suggested you keep a lid on cooking fires. These common accidents cause painful and serious burns. Handle them properly if grease ignites in a pan, slide the lid or a larger pan on the fire to smother it. Don't use water or flour. They'll make the fire bigger. Don't carry the burning pan. Always call the fire department when any fire occurs.

One way to prevent cooking fires is to never leave the cooking area unattended. It takes only seconds for grease to ignite. A “watched pot” may never boil, but it is less likely to catch fire.
