Please read this first, watch the video, and then look at the summary of what to do and not do with a kitchen fire. This video shows you the dangers of an oil fire in a frying pan if you do not know what to do. 
​Here are the DO's and DO NOT's shown in the video:
DO NOT:
>Do Not try to move the pan, as the grease can spill onto your hands and face and give you a severe burn.
>Do Not throw water on the grease. The water, being heavier than the oil, sinks to the bottom where it instantly becomes super-heated.  The explosive force of the steam blows the burning oil up and out, and becomes a fireball that reaches the ceiling, and fills the entire room!
​>Do Not throw sugar or flour on the grease fire. One cup of either creates the explosive force of two (2) sticks of dynamite!
DO:
>Turn off the heat to the pan.
>Use a washcloth soaked in water to gently lay over the fire.
​>Wait until the fire is out and the pan has cooled before removing the pan from the stove.
