Failed Flambé Leads to Fire Damage Restoration in Santa Maria, CA

It’s a beautiful spring day in Santa Maria, CA, and you’re in high spirits. Your spouse is finally coming home after a month-long training for work. You’ve spent the entire week cleaning the house and getting prepared for their homecoming, which included watching every cooking show that you could find to come up with the perfect dinner. You’ve decided you’re going to cook steak with fancy potatoes, the name of which you can’t even pronounce. For dessert, you plan on making a decadent chocolate cake with flambéed fruit.

 You’re a little nervous about the flame part but you’ve watched all the shows and it really doesn’t look all that difficult. You’ve gotten to the point where you’re adding the alcohol to the fruit and are ready to set it on fire. As you put the pan back toward the flame on the stove, the alcohol catches fire and creates a nice large flame. Startled, you raise the pan higher above the stove, but before you realize it, you’ve raised the pan too high. Now your range hood and the cabinet next to it are in flames and a thick smoke is filling the air.

 For a few long seconds you stand staring, trying to figure out what to do. Finally, your brain begins to function and you get the pan in the sink and the fire extinguisher to put the fire out. Silently, you stare at the charred remains of the door of your cupboard and the melted body of your hood range.
