Kitchen grease fires are the leading cause of home fires in the United States. A grease fire will in most cases start when oil or fat is left on the stove unattended. Being highly flammable, the oil will quickly over-heat, ignite, burn and spread out. Other times, grease fires can be caused by spills in the drip pan often coming from previous cooking sessions.
