Broiler fire and Questions

Have not used my broiler much on my fairly new Wolf gas/gas. Other half put aluminun foil in the pan to aid in cleanup. This stove recomends that the door be closed when operating. Before you know it she says that there was some smoke and turned on the fan. When I checked it for doneness the foil was on fire and needless to say it was well done. Quickly took pan and contents outside and all was alright (except for the lamb chops) What gives ??????

Broiler pans have holes in them so the fat will drain into the pan below. This keeps it from collecting in pools and catching fire from the broiler flame.

The application of foil was a very effective way to prevent the fat from excaping to safety. Next time, poke through the foil where ALL the holes in the pan are so the fat can drain.

Thanks for the help. Its easier to clean a broiler pan than a kitchen fire. No foil and pay attention !!!!!
