Real story and it has happened twice. I was frying in the kitchen and my alarm system is on full alert 24-7. I was frying and the smoke reached the alarm. My neighborhood is on a pensinsula and there is less than a 100 homes located here. Multiple firetrucks arrived making a loud arrival in the neighborhood. I was extremely embarassed. They came in the house even after I called them and told them not to come. They were fully masked.
This happened twice. I thought they would bill me but they never did.
Obviously, I am very careful with my cooking after this problem.
