What would MacGyver do?

Greg Childress, a paramedic/firefighter with Durango Fire & Rescue Authority, demonstrates what not to do in the event of a stove-top grease fire: put water on it. The demonstration of a “grease-bomb” was part of the Durango Discovery Museum’s weeklong MacGyverology summer camp for children 8 to 11 years old. “Making something out of nothing” is the theme of the camp, and the science behind firefighting was among the skills and demonstrations offered.
