The Little Matter of Clutter

I had a small fire in my oven this morning. Nothing drastic, and it was out within a few minutes … but it totally freaked my daughter out. (Ok, maybe me too.)

Oven fires happen. Certain things make oven fires more likely to happen … like, say… maybe having forgotten to clean the oven for many months.
