I put a pot of soup on the stove to warm and then stepped out of the RV briefly.
While outside, the soup boiled over and Ed removed the pot from the burner.
I returned a minute later to the RV to see a mess of soup on the stove and immediately began to clean it up using Windex and paper towelling.
Next thing I knew, the paper towelling was on fire.
Fortunately, the water faucet was handy so I grabbed a cup of water and doused the flames.
That’s when I noticed that the burner was still on… Aaaah-hem.
Granted, I didn’t check before I started cleaning, but geez, who removes boiling soup from a stove and doesn’t turn the burner off???
(I wish I had a dollar for every time I found the gas burner left on at home — I could probably pay the monthly gas bill with the proceeds).
Lesson: Turn gas off prior to removing pots from burner. 🙂
