The fire goes off when the bucket is placed on the cylinder because oxygen helps the fire burn, so covering the head of the cylinder prevents the fire from having access to oxygen, thereby quenching it.

How To Prevent Kitchen Fires

Fire is one of the things we use the most in many Ghanaian kitchens. As helpful as fire is, it can be lethal also. Therefore, practicing safety in the kitchen is necessary in order to prevent unfortunate fires.

One way of preventing a fire in the kitchen is not leaving food on fire unattended. Unfortunately, many people tend to leave food unattended on the stove, which is not a good practice. Such practices contribute to a large percentage of kitchen fires. Hence people are advised to desist from it.

To add, installing fire alarms is a great way of preventing fires in the kitchen and in the home. One has to make sure fire alarms are working to ensure their efficiency. Having fire alarms in the kitchen and at home alerts you when a fire is about to happen or is already happening.
