Would appreciate it if the Weekly would print a REMINDER in the paper for people to read about how to deal with a kitchen grease fire.
Prevention could save horrible disfigurement, loss of property and lives....................Thanks.

Just a FYI for those who panic when there is a grease fire. You can use regular table salt that is always in the kitchen cabinet, this will smother and wipe out the grease fire. Or try smothering with the lid of the skillet/pot.
Please feel free to jump in with some of your home remedies.

Thanks.
