Came home to this:
No one was hurt. Fire department came and put out the fire (which had descended from the top burner into the stove).
We need a new stove and electrical connection for it. Not sure what we’ll do about the scorched Formica counter-tops.
I heard about this as it was going on while I was at work, but there was nothing I could do to help. Hated that.
The acrid smell is noticeable every time I enter the house. I’m hoping that is not a health problem.
