A Dramatic Restaurant Fire, Caused by Grease Build up in the Kitchen Canopy, Broadbeach, Gold Coast

I have been visiting this Gold Coast venue for the last five years, giving them brochure to encourage
them to have their kitchen exhaust system cleaned. In March this year the owner called me out and this is what I
found. The wok in the kitchen caught on fire. This ignited the hazardous grease in the gutters which
then ignited the filter which was heavy with grease. The inside of the filter then travelled up the flue
whilst on fire ultimately exploding out of the top of the restaurant causing thousands of dollars of
damage. Not to mention the risk to life, limb and livelihood as this restaurant was at the base of a
residential building.
