Article Summary: 

The article provides a comprehensive guide on how to handle a grease fire safely and clean up afterward. It explains that a grease fire occurs when cooking oil or grease becomes too hot and ignites, often happening in kitchens during high-heat cooking methods. To prevent grease fires, it is important to practice caution and be aware of the specific temperature thresholds of different cooking oils. In the event of a grease fire, the article emphasizes the importance of turning off the heat source, covering the flames with a metal lid to deprive them of oxygen, and never using water to extinguish the fire. It also recommends using a fire extinguisher, applying baking soda or salt, and keeping a lid on the pan after the fire is out. Additionally, the article advises cleaning the area thoroughly after the situation is under control and contacting professional fire damage restoration services, like PuroClean, for proper clean-up and restoration.
