If you have a smoke fire in your apartment from your stove(no flames; just smoke) should you pull the fire alarm?
There was smoke everywhere in the kitchen, I could barely see what was going on. I was able to turn the element off, and move the pot off of the element onto another element and pulled the fire alarm in the hallway.
Turns out it actually melted the bottom of the stainless steel pot right off. And I had it on low simmering for several hours.
It melted the stainless steel pot. Melted the bottom of it right off. Ruined both front elements.
Was it unnecessary for me to pull the fire alarm? I had another tenant complain about people pulling fire alarms for a little bit of smoke; so that is why I am asking.
