It’s that time of year again, when the delicious smell of BBQ cooking can be smelled around the UK. But it’s important to remember that BBQ fires can be dangerous and cause significant damage. Fortunately, there are several measures you can take to prevent them. Here are some tips for preventing a BBQ fire from the experienced team at Hartson Fire.
By following these tips, you can help prevent a BBQ fire and ensure a safe and enjoyable grilling experience.
If a fire were to start while you are barbecuing, the type of fire extinguisher you would need depends on the type of grill you are using and the type of fire you are dealing with.
If you are using a gas grill, you would need a powder or foam fire extinguisher, which would be appropriate for this type of fire.
If you are using a charcoal grill, you would need a Class A fire extinguisher, which is designed to extinguish fires involving ordinary combustibles such as wood, paper, and cloth. A water or foam fire extinguisher would be appropriate for this type of fire.
It's important to note that if the fire is small and contained, you may be able to extinguish it with a fire blanket. However, if the fire is large or spreading quickly, do not attempt to extinguish it yourself. Instead, evacuate the area immediately and call the fire department.
Happy Barbecuing !!!
