Please note that this is Plan B. Plan A, if you're lucky enough that it's in a pan, is to cover the pot or pan with a fitted lid. Plan C is to use a little Class B fire extinguisher. In that case, be prepared to do lots of cleaning up, but, hey, at least you'll have a kitchen to clean! Plan D is to call 911 to reach the fire department and to pray.
