In brief: Cool/tepid water
Immediately place the burned area (if not extremely severe) in cool or tepid water to stop the burning.
Gently washing with cool water & soap will remove residual oil. Do not remove blisters (they provide a sterile "bandage"). If a large area of hand/face/etc is involved, seek medical help at once for definitive treatment to prevent contractures. Do not smear burn with grease/butter/the like.
