just a bit of general education for you all:
if you accidentally drop an entire pizza on the oven door and it slides down and touches the red hot coils at the bottom of the oven, it will indeed catch the pizza, as well as the coils, on fire.
freaking out will get you no where. and the fire will continue to burn.
eliminating contact with pizza and coils will stop the fire on the coils, but the pizza will continue to burn.
pat pizza with spatula and the fire will extinguish.
everything is O.K.
no need to worry.
your apartment didn't almost burn down.
i may or may not have just learned this from experience.
man, bad day for destructive forces.
