    Hi,

    So last week me and my housemates had a small fire in the grill part of the oven. It was caused due to the grill being left on accidentally and a fat build up caught fire. Smoke alarms alerted us to the fire and whilst everyone evacuated I put out the fire with an extinguisher. When I got outside, nobody had already called 999 and so we didn't bother as the fire was out.

    Was this the right course of action?

    Yes that is fine. You should also clean the grill of the left over fat to prevent the same thing happening again.

    If the fire is out and there is no imminent risk to life or property, then there is no need to call the fire brigade And yeah, defo clean the grill!! and maybe put a note near the oven to remind people to make sure people turn it off
