Stand By Your Pan

Perhaps thinking of that song title might remind people not to leave cooking (especially on the hob) unattended, particularly when they are tired, such as late at night.

I never do, unlike this fellow – and there have been several such stories in this area recently, including a deep fryer in Ingle Road, not all that far from where I live. This is something like the fourth such incident of which I have read in the local news during the past few weeks, and I suspect the warmer evenings might have something to do with people sitting down and dozing off while cooking is in progress.

This is also a useful reminder to make sure we have working smoke alarms, at least one on each floor of our home, and one of them to be near (though not in) the kitchen.
