Chip Pan Warning

2 August 2010, 15:07

North Devon fire crews are warning us never to throw water over a chip pan fire, after attending a fire in Barnstaple.

Although no-one was hurt this time, watch the video below to see what can happen.

If we used a conventional chip pan, we're being advised to only fill it 1/3 of the way up with oil, and try and stay in the kitchen while it's being used.

Tell us what you think - Would you know what to do in a fire?  Add a comment below.
