Fire Extinguisher Reminder

10 years ago

I know this doesn't have anything to do with kitchen remodel or decor, but I just came within probably 5 seconds of having a massive kitchen fire. First time in the 51 years I've been married and had my own home and I'm shaking like a leaf right now.

Same old story- heating olive oil in a frying pan on medium high because I was rushing, turned my back and started loading the dishwasher with a few things, and when I turned around the oil was total black smoke and about to go up in flames I know. I got the pan off the flame, but I know we came very very close to an awful fire.

No, we do NOT have a fire extinguisher!!! Used to, don't know what happened to it, and it's one of those things I occasionally think about when I'm cooking and then forget. PLEASE, if you don't have one get one first thing tomorrow like I am going to do!
