That's a great idea. As long as we no longer allow engineered lumber to be used in construction of these types of locations and all furniture placed inside is minimum 1 hour fire resistive. Additionally, there needs to be annual certification requirement for all occupants on using the device.

Sarcasm off, this is just beyond stupid. Get out, leave your stuff, go to a neighbors, call for help. We learn these lessons from the moment we can comprehend fire prevention.

Now lets stay in the kitchen and pretend we're firemen.

PS (Will they be K Class, or ABC?)

After all these years of stressing the most important thing is to get out with your life.....Now we are going to say "Go ahead and try to fight the fire yourself with a 2 pound fire extinguisher!" REALLY !!!

Has anyone had automatic sprinklers come on in a kitchen when deep frying french fries? If not, well, I can put you in touch with someone in the hospital because of this. Ever heard that you never pour water on a grease fire?

Fire accident is really pathetic and it carries out millions of lives each year...
So we must spread out caution and should encourage people how to fight potentially against unwanted fires...
