How can that happen, unless there was heaps of crud under the grills and in the bottom.?

happened to me once on a Q220 i had back a few yrs ago....trying to get crackle on a pork belly roast.....unbelievable fat fire....melted my handle light but thats it...just had to let it burn itelf out because there no way you can cut oxygen off....i was more concerned the fat tray under was going to catch alight. turned off and uncscred gas tank in record time...anyway...bbq didn't melt and was ok to go again after a clean up...very lucky.
