Chip Pan Fire Statistics
Oil pan fires cause one fifth of all accidental dwelling fires in the UK each year. Nearly 20 people are killed or injured daily in accidental fires, the most common of these caused by deep fat frying.
Families across the country are putting themselves at risk of serious burns because they are unaware of the measures they should take in the event of an oil pan fire. This year alone oil pan fires in London, Kent, Essex, Suffolk, Surrey, Sussex, Nottinghamshire and Buckinghamshire have caused heartache for families.
In Kent last year a chip pan blaze wrecked a home causing a staggering £100,000 worth of damage and leaving a family homeless.
In Buckinghamshire more than half of all accidental fires in the home
(125 of the 247 house fires in Buckinghamshire, and 119 of the 185 accidental house fires in Milton Keynes), started in the kitchen.
London Fire Brigade figures also show that in London in the last five years there were 1,754 chip pan fires, over 500 people were injured and three people died.
If you do have a chip pan fire:
- Call the Fire and Rescue Service on 999 immediately.
- Don’t take risks.
- Have a clear escape route.
- Never move the pan.
- Turn off the heat (if it’s safe to do so).
- Place the Pan-Safe sachet into the pan (please watch our demonstration video on the products or gallery page).
- Never use water on chip pan fires, as this will cause a fireball.
The most common type of fire is caused by deep fat frying, with 4,000 people injured in these kinds of fires each year.
