Safety advice if you have an oven fire - and what to do:

> Leave the oven door closed

> Turn off the oven and allow the fire to burn out on its own

> If it does not go out on its own, leave the house and call 911

> If it does go out, then open your windows.

> Carefully open the oven door (it will be smoky) and remove the hot pan.
