Fire safety is something that can be taught so many times and still, people get stumped when they are in a fire emergency. 

This is why it is important to constantly keep yourself and your family informed and refresh fire safety tips often. 

We came across a video that was shared on TikTok. 

In the video, we see firemen, who we believe are from the USA, perform a fire safety demonstration. 

They have an enclosed demonstration area with a stove and show how the pot caught alight. The fireman very confidently says that putting water on a fire that started on the stove will make it worse. 

Watch what happens when they put water on the fire.

In case you missed it, instead of water, pour on baking soda or bicarbonate of soda, which it is commonly referred to in South Africa. 

This will put out the fire instantly.
