A friend sent me a video today, which showed quick easy steps to put out a stove fire.  Its simplicity Stay calm -- and follow a few simple steps.and effectiveness really struck me, and I thought it was worth passing on to you. 
Just knowing these simple steps might just save lives some day.  If your pan or pot catches fire, follow these steps:
1. Turn off the heat.
2. Run a dishcloth under the faucet and wring it out.
3. Cover pan or pot with wet dishcloth and wait till it has cooled down. Don’t ever throw water on top of the fire.
Of course, this is not a substitute for also having a charged fire extinguisher on-hand, too!
