Kitchen Fire

Well just came in to say I will be away for a few days. I accidently caught our kitchen on fire from a pan of grease. Who knew a little thing like that could do so much damage. The stove even burned, but luckily I can feel good in the dark and found the fire extenguiser and was able to put it out by the time the firemen got here. With me having bronchitis, I inhaled a lot of smoke and had to be taken to the hospital. A cleaning and air purifying company is coming to day to clean up my mess. I was fortunate that the First Alert got there and were able to put me on oxygen right away. Now we have to face the adjusters and we have a $500 deductible, which isn't too bad and we have full replacement coverage, so we expect the damages to be around $2,000, so hoping to get a new stove and vent. It shorted out and kicked our breaker so I was left in the thick black smoke, which went into the kitchen, dining room, living room and bath. It's horrible, but I am safe and it's only material things that can be replaced. So I will see you in a few days after all this is done. Love, hugs, and prayers, Pat

You POOR thing! How unfortunate for you that it happened but maybe some new kitchen things will be the blessing. Glad you weren't hurt badly. My goodness, what a thing to happen, sweetpea.

Oh Pat, I'm sooo sorry. I know exactly how quickly like these things can happen. When my hubby and I were engaged, he was supposed to come over and help me address invitations. Well, he got up and was at his parents alone, decided to make bacon and eggs, so turned the burner on and plopped the bacon in the skillet. Decided to take a quick shower, forgot the skillet was still on....yep, huge grease fire. He got out okay, but boy were his parents upset! Lots of damage.

I'm so glad you are okay and hope the bronchitis will soon improve. I'm feeling a bit stronger myself today. Very thankful that you have good insurance coverage.

Thanks for your address. I'll let you know when to look for your little package!

Big TX Hugs and Prayers,

Thank you so much for the kind words. WE didn't need this right now and I feel guilty that I forgot the grease. Al said to forget about it, he was just glad I didn't get hurt, especially with me having bronchitis right now. Love and hugs, Pat
