  • 1. Preventing a Large fire in Boise Should a fire break out in your Boise home, you will want to be prepared to deal with the fire properly. There are a lot of people that struggle dealing with a fire in a safe manner that also minimizes the amount of fire damage that they are going to have to deal with. Fire Damage’s Best Defense is Prevention Fire damage in Boise can be devastating and it can also be extremely dangerous. Preventing fire damage is the easiest way to ensure that you are not going to have to deal with the cost and time that is associated with rebuilding when fire damage in Boise occurs. As you are working on preventing fire damage, you will want to know how to respond to any type of flame in your home. Often times fires are started in the kitchen because there are many people that are working with an open flame when they are cooking in the kitchen. When you are cooking in the kitchen you will also be dealing with temperatures that are very high. If you are baking, you will want to be aware of the temperatures and ensure that you are going to prevent a flame the best that you can. If a flame should appear in the kitchen, you should be able to react quickly. Reacting properly and reacting quickly may prevent a fire from occurring in your home and forcing you to deal with the fire damage that can often be a result of your house fire. Flames in the Kitchen When there is a flame in your microwave, you should be sure that you do not open the microwave door. If you open the microwave door, you will find that the flames can quickly grow because they have oxygen to feed off of but if the door is closed they will suffocate. If there are flames in your oven, you should also keep your oven door closed. If you find that there continues to be smoke pouring out of your oven, you want to call the fire department as soon as you can to make sure that you have a professional there to deal with the fire. When you find that you have a flame in a pot or a pan that is on the stove, you should be sure that you grab an oven mitt and use it to throw the lid on the pot or the pan. This way, you can be sure that you are going to be able to suffocate the flames within the pot or the pan.
