What are the Causes of Food Fires?

While there are a multitude of reasons why food fires begin in the first place, some common causes include:

  • Leaving food unattended: One of the most common causes of food fires stems from leaving food unattended. When food is left ignored, it can easily overheat and catch fire.

  • Overcrowding the stove: When there is too much food cooking on the stove, it can create a fire hazard.

  • Using too much oil or grease: Grease and oil can easily catch fire when they are heated to high temperatures.

  • Storing flammable materials near a stove: Flammable materials, such as cleaning supplies, should never be stored near the stove.

  • Not cleaning up spills: Spilled oil or grease can also catch fire if it is not cleaned up promptly.

Food fires are also known as protein fires. When it comes to our dependable remediation services, Watermark Restoration Solutions uses an in-depth process which includes:
