The first rule of oven fires: Don’t open your oven door. That’s the advice of KC Davis, a licensed professional counselor. She took to her TikTok account (@domesticblisters) with a PSA on oven fires.
She starts by calmly saying, “Rule number one: Don’t open the oven door,” while showing a flaming dish inside her oven.
She then finds a fire extinguisher and looks at the directions while the fire burns in the oven behind her. “You should probably learn how to use one of these before this happens,” she remarks.
She points out, “Fires need oxygen. The worst thing we could do is open the door and have a big gust of oxygen go in there. So, we’re going to wait to see if it goes out on its own and keep the door shut.”
She then cuts into a steak before returning to the oven to show a now-dwindling fire. A beat later, she reports the fire is out.
