Crossing the channel at its narrowest point should, according to the book, enable gliding to land. (What I have to admit I haven't worked out is whether one would reach land with enough height to clear the cliffs.)

And "it'll never happen to me" is the only practical response to the risk of a non-trivial fire other than not flying at all.
