 A  saftey tip to remember
    Watch this one!   It's really worth knowing!
    KITCHEN  GREASE FIRE - worth your time .....

We have  heard not to put water on a kitchen grease fire ... if you every  wondered 'why not' .... read the following ... Pretty scary stuff  ..
I had  not heard the wet towel approach.  This is very good information;  please watch the video . This video is only 34 seconds long; but if you're ever in  this situation, it will save your kitchen, house and most of all you  if you follow the advice.  Watch this video and learn what not to  use to put out a grease fire.
At  Charleston Navy base at the Fire Fighting Training school they  demonstrate this with a deep fat fryer set on the fire field.    An instructor would don a fire suit and using an 8 oz cup at the  end of a 10-foot pole toss water onto the grease fire.   The  results got the attention of the students.   The water,  being heavier than the oil, sinks to the bottom where it instantly  becomes superheated.   The explosive force of the steam  blows the burning oil up and out.   On the open field, it  became a thirty-foot high fireball that resembles a nuclear blast.    Inside the confines of a kitchen, the fireball hits the  ceiling and fills the entire room.   Also do not throw sugar  or flour on a grease fire.   One cup creates the explosive  force of two sticks of  dynamite.

You`re right, everyone should take the time to watch that.
