When frying with a stove/cooktop, sometimes, without paying notice, fire erupts suddenly: even with minimum quantities, oil can self-ignite within a few minutes if left alone, a towel or sheet of paper can get ignited if left close to a burner.
The NFPA which conducts research on various fire issues in the US, found that 47% of home fires in US are originated with cooking appliances and these are the reported events. There are many more fire events that are not reported because somehow, they managed to extinguish it.
Also, 45% of fire related injuries are related to cooking.
Here Are Some Fire Hazard Tips:
If something caught fire, especially oil, never try to extinguish the fire with water. If you have an extinguisher, better a K type for kitchen fires or even a standard extinguisher which deploys dry powder, use it.
Do not operate it too close to the fire keep minimum distance of 5 feet.
If there is no extinguisher around and the fire is still small, use the pot/skillet cover and turn the stove power off.
