what to do when there is a fire in your oven?

Jump to last reply

How is this travel related? I am supposed to leave tomorrow morning for NJ for 4 days. Tonight, I was cooking a nice little dinner for hubby and I, I turn on the pre-heat on the oven and continue fixing my salad.

After a few mins I smell something funny - I look outside, thinking maybe someone is bbqing - I forget about it and continue on doing something else.

After about 10 mins that funny smell is getting really intense! I glance down and see flames coming from my oven! Long story short, there is a plastic bus tub in my oven ~ it's a long story.

I yell to DH - I need your help - he comes in, opens the oven - yup, fire in the oven - it's getting worse, the smell is horrible. Luckily I have a fire extinguisher in the garage, he proceeds to empty the entire thing in my oven, fire goes out FINALLY. (it took awhile).

I have looked on the internet, googled, cannot find any info. What do i do now?

Has this ever happened to anyone? Can I use my burners? How do I get the burnt plastic out of my stove? My homeowners insurance is about the same as what my stove cost, would rather not go there. Hubby not happy.
