This depends on the type of oil used, every oil has a point of causing fire (flashpoint), according to culinarylore.com fire outbreak will automatically occour when the temperature of any oil reaches 400-435 degree Celsius (750 – 815 degree Fahrenheit).

  • Use a dry powder, foam or carbon dioxide fire extinguisher, immediately.
  • WARNING!: Never use water to quench a grease fire, it will worsen it

  • Try to turn off the fuel source immediately (stove, gas cooker or any cooking device used).
