A 21-YEAR-OLD woman had to call 999 after she set her oven on fire while cooking burgers.

Two fire engines from Bolton Central and Bolton North stations were called out to the incident in Jethro Street, Tonge Fold, after sparks from the fat in the beefburgers set the oven on fire.

The fire was out when firefighters arrived, but they inspected the cooker and carried out a fire safety check.

Does she not have a grill.
It seems very wasteful to cook beefburgers in an oven; no wonder she lives in Tonge Fold.

Get one thing straight, you can cook hamburgers in the oven. The problem here has been that the unfortunate woman must have used a bare grill. In this case the fat from the food will drip and there is a good chance it will set alight, or she may have had the food too close to the grill. It is newsworthy and not nice to poke fun at this. Another thing, it does not matter where you live. Due to economic and social profiling a lot of people will not have the opportunities made available to others, this accident could have happened to anyone though.

How does this relate to an action hero trudging through the jungle. It is not his fault that the woman can not cook; and he would not be cooking in an oven; rather an open fire and probably a bit of rat or old rotten sheep carcass.
