London Fire Brigade

If your clothes catch fire

Remember: stop, drop and roll

If your clothes catch fire, remember: stop, drop and roll. Don't run around, you'll make the flames worse.

Lie down and roll around. This makes it harder for the flames to spread.

If you are with someone whose clothes have caught fire, get them to stop, drop and roll; then smother the flames with a heavy material, like a coat or blanket.
