The Great Kitchen Fire of Aught-Nine

Imagine a chemically campfire smell, and you’ll get the full impact of my kitchen.

Smokey Cabinet

Yes, this is what happens when you set a plastic bucket lid on top of the toaster and then (without realizing it) push the toaster button down and then go to answer the door, where you stand chatting with a friend until the kids start screaming that the kitchen is on fire.

Everyone is fine, and while we did have actual flames licking up the cabinet, we put it out quickly without having to call the fire department.

We do now have confirmation that all our smoke alarms work.
