Where it is safe to do so, you should turn off the heat before trying to extinguish the fire.

If the fire is bigger than the blanket you should NOT try to smother it.

Using a Fire Blanket:

Pull it out from the case.

Hold it in front of you, gripping near the top corners.

Protect your hands using the blanket.

Place the blanket over the fire.

Leave the fire covered for 30 minutes to prevent reignition.
