Duluth Fire Department Demonstrates How Explosive and Dangerous a Kitchen Can Be [GIF]

The Duluth Fire Department stopped by the radio station today with their new kitchen fire demonstration trailer to show us how explosive and dangerous a kitchen fire can be.

More fires start in the kitchen than in any other part of the home and they are also the leading cause of home fire-related injuries. So with the help of a $25,000 federal grant, the DFD is spreading the word about what to do, and what not to do in the case of a grease/oil fire in the kitchen with this new demonstration trailer.

If you ever have a grease/oil fire in your kitchen, put a lid or baking sheet on top of the pot to suffocate the fire and call the fire department if it is out of control or you feel uncomfortable with the situation, NEVER EVER try to remove the pot from heat source, as you could spill the burning oil everywhere, spreading the fire and NEVER, EVER, EVER throw water on the fire, or this could happen:
