One of my housemates accidentally burned some garlic bread this evening. While he was able to immediately quell any fire, the resulting smoke overwhelmed the entire bottom floor of the house, which set off all the smoke alarms and it became necessary to open all the windows.
While the house is no longer filled with smoke, the smell nevertheless remains. At least the house and everyone are okay - it was just burnt garlic bread, which was easily dealt with! Disappointing that the smell of smoke overpowers the smell of garlic.
