My husband was working at home and smelled a chemical smell. He went down to locate the source and opened the freezer side door. There were flames coming from the ice maker. He shut the door, unplugged the refrigerator and grabbed the fire extinguisher. He did not need to use the extinguisher as the fire went out my itself.
