For your delectation, I include my action tested checklist from this morning's excitement.
1) Check to see if flames are contained within toaster oven.
2) Remove smoke alarm from ceiling mount and place inside freezer.
3) Remove burning toast from oven.
4) Shut cats in back room.
5) Open front door.
6) Using towels, carry burning toaster oven outside into the rain.
7) Leaving front door open, turn fan on high, facing outward.
8) Eat blackened cheese toast.
9) Reinstall smoke alarm.
