You probably won’t have much time to put out your grease fire before it gets out of hand, so act quickly. After turning off the burner and evacuating the kitchen, use a non-glass pan lid to cover the fire. If you have a lot of baking soda handy, try to use that to smother the fire. If not, use your fire extinguisher to fight the fire. Keep your phone nearby throughout the process so you can call 911 right away if the solutions are ineffective. Once the fire has been put out, you can call for fire restoration.
