When I was young my mother was cooking and grease off pan popped into a burner. It started a fire. Grease fires are put out by smothering or foam like a fire sprinkler in a kitchen would.
Glad everything is safe. I tip my toaster getting crumbs out. I also use it on a granite slab.

Could have been the heating element...

I'm glad you and your home are okay, even if the toaster is, well, 'toast'.

Heating elements will sometimes produce a flame when they fail. I've seen it happen on small appliances and stove burners alike. My parents had a GE toaster oven back in the late '70s or early '80s that had a heating element fail and flame out. Back then, it was more economical to repair appliances than to replace them so they got a new heating element put in and used it for probably another fifteen or twenty years without any further issues.
