Fire risks of an extraction system?

The kitchen extraction system presents particular hazards due to the potential for the accumulation of grease. Accumulated grease within an extract system forms a hidden combustion load.

Under certain circumstances flames or very high temperature within the duct can ignite the grease causing fire to spread rapidly through the duct.

Flame and heat within the duct can ignite surrounding materials at various points along the ductwork path and transfer fire in ways that are difficult to predict and control by designers, installers and ultimately fire fighters

This is the reason that regular cleaning of the extraction system and ducting is essential to prevent risk to people and property.
