Last night I finished up dinner at about 6p.m. When I woke up this morning at about 7a.m. I noticed a smell. I was getting my little girl some cereal and happened to notice that I left one of the burners on low without a flame all night!!! I am freaking out!! Any suggestions on what to do? I have a few windows open!!!

The other Sunday we went out all day and I left the oven on! I couldn’t believe I had done it and my 2 furbabies were in the house. You should be fine as long as you air out the house.

Actually, my parents are pretty forgetful, and they do it all the time :). Just air the house like Roxy821 said, you’ll be fine!

I did this once too. I accidently bumped the stove while moving chairs around and knocked the burner on low. I left it like that all day while I was out. Just open all of your windows, run a fan, and prop open some doors if you can!

last week Fiance put some fishsticks in the oven for a midnight snack and fell asleep. I woke up at 5 am to a smoky house

If it’s natural gas all you can do is air out the place and try to avoid points of ignition as much as possible. Don’t use the toaster, microwave, your cellphone, lighters, etc. in the area until you’re sure there isn’t enough gas left in the air to ignite.
A lady in the condos down the road from us did this in the summer. She left her burner on all night. When she noticed she just turned the burner off and didn’t air out her place. The gas pocket in her place ignited and blew up her propane tank on her patio. The whole building was leveled! Thought I should share 😐
As long as you have the windows open and some fans going you should be fine!

That is the #1 reason why I can not have a gas stove.
I think if you open up the window’s to air out the house you should be fine. If it would make you feel safer you can call the fire department’s non emergency line and ask them what to do.
