Can an oven being left on, actually kill you?

last night, after i was done with QnA, i had went into the kitchen to get a drink when i noticed my mom had forgotten, to turn of the oven, from when she was cooking a couple of hours earlier......after it was turned off, i started to wonder, can you really die, from the oven being left on? how long does it have to be left on for that to happen?
Redneck Rev:

I would imagine the only way for that to happen would be for something to catch on fire around it. I have forgotten to turn the stove off many times before and it hasn't burned down yet. It was just really hot in the house and I was wondering why. Now we have a gas stove and I hate gas so that is the only thing that would scare me about leaving it on. I can't stand gas stoves but I am renting so I have no choice in the matter.

Redneck Rev:

Well gas can kill you whether you leave the stove on or not. I don't think the stove has to be on for the house to fill up with gas. I am not sure how it works but I think something else causes the gas to leak, which would cause the house to explode.

Tee:

jules......look on top of the stove.....does it have FIRE coming out of it when its on? if so then it is gas.

Tee:

I think u r ok unless the place catches on fire jules....I have left my oven on for hours when I used it to heat the house when the gas line was messedup.

Alabama:

If the oven is operating properly there should be no danger. This includes no gas leaks for a gas oven and proper ventilation. Of course, if there is any food in the oven it could ignite and start a fire.
