I guess we are not going to get by the correct Grammar thread.
So I will just say it how I see it.
We almost got a picture of you cooking Shrimp on the BBQ. Something does seem out of place, that grill looks very clean for a well used grill.
In 15 years you have never seen this before? You did not say what your last cook or cooks were which could have explained the fire.
It does look like a common grease fire but I have also seen this happen with a sugar/honey drip, it will burn like crazy and puts off a nasty odor.
