Fire Play ....

Read first, then watch This is a dramatic video (30 seconds, very short) about how to deal with a common kitchen fire...oil in a frying pan. Read the following introduction, then watch the film...it's a real eye-opener!! At the Fire Fighting Training School they would demonstrate this with a deep fat fryer set on the fire field. An instructor would don a fire suit and using a 250ml cup at the end of a 10 foot pole, toss the water onto the grease fire. The results always got the students' attention. The water, being heavier than oil, sinks to the bottom where it instantly becomes superheated. The force of the steam blows the burning oil up and out. On the open field, it became a 30 foot high fireball... Inside the confines of a kitchen, the fireball hits the ceiling and fills the entire room.Also, do not throw sugar or flour on a grease fire. One cup creates the explosive force of two sticks of dynamite. This is a powerful message - watch the video and don't forget what you see. Who would have realised that a wet dishcloth can be a one size fits all lid to cover fire in a pan!!

Obvious hints do not work!

Just say it!

************

1. Yes and No are perfectly acceptable answers to almost every question.
