Flour puts out grease fires. Keep a bag nearby to smother the flames. When I was packing my RV to move to Florida I gave away suits, leather jackets with matching skirts and slacks, leather coats, etc. to a charity that provides clothing for women in shelters needing clothes for job interviews, etc. I also gave away about 50 pairs of high heels and purses. Take care of your burns!

Never ignore those who care for you
you will have lost diamonds
while you were collecting stones

Well dear friend you could go get a fire extinguisher and put it in your house and grab it when that happens again don't feel bad when my daughter was little she locked herself in the bathroom and I had to call the fire department to unlock it but I was ironing and the iron fell on the floor and our in house so luckily they weren't no damage except they had to replace part of the floor from the iron. But the suit makes the man

The Light is shinning and she is lonely and waiting in the darkness.

I think any type of house fire is one of the scariest experiences to go through. One of the Top causes is exactly what you described....leaving cooking unattended. Thank goodness you noticed and reacted when you did so that the results weren't more devastating. According to a study done by the American Psychological Association, the way a man dresses significantly affects how a woman rates his attractiveness.

You don’t know if you don’t ask.
That s Not My Job

My second, now Ex, wife had a grease fire once. Left the kitchen for a "moment". Heard the woomp of ignition and ran in. Put the lid on the pot but the flames started out the sides. Grabbed potholders and towels, walked it flaming through the living room and tossed it out on the brick patio.
Our fireman neighbor saw her do it and told her he thought that was a neat trick but not smart. That was the pots first and last use.
Fortunately we were planning on remodeling the kitchen. Just had to do it a tad sooner than expected.
Hope you did not get burned too bad.

If you see me in the real world, come say "Hi Justskin."

I always behave. Preferably not well.

And that is why I don't fry.

I'm glad it wasn't worse for you.

Holy moly don't do that! You scared the bejeezus out of me. You know chiffon is a man made fabric and will melt when exposed to heat? That crap will melt to your skin and if you were commando ... Oh my goodness. Be careful please.

Wow..Thank Goodness you are OK..Those kind of fires ,well any fire is, quite scary. Hope the burns heal soon. Same kind of thing happened to my Mom . She was frying a hamburger in the kitchen, heard some thing on tv in living room and stepped out of kitchen to check it .. I came walking by moments later and asked Mom, "Why is Champion ( my ginger Kitty ) staring at the Kitchen ?" Mom jumped up, saw the pan on fire and grabbed a pan lid to cover it..It could have been a lot worse.. I did laugh though as my Boy Kitty just sat there watching the flames..

Stay Safe Hugs,


I done made the devil a deal
He made me pretty
He made me smart

I've told my oldest G-girl to never leave the kitchen with water on to boil, but oil frying is a whole new level of dangerous.

Yikes! Glad you came through without setting your whole building on fire.

If it makes you feel any better, last week I forgot to turn off a burner under a skillet after I was done preparing something. Half hour later, in the living room watching TV, I noticed a slight "burny" smell... Just extra seasoning on the cast iron pan in this case!

Oy vey! What a mess!
I'm glad you didn't have that chiffon dress in your kitchen, didn't throw the pan with burning grease into the forest, only suffered minor burns, and didn't end up homeless. xo

As to a man and a suit... that would be a topic an interesting discussion.
