Take another look at the sentence:

Spewing from the open oven door, LaTanya filled the kitchen with the thick smoke of burnt cookies.

Spewing from the open oven door, a participle phrase, comes right before LaTanya, an illogical target. The smoke, not the poor baker, should be the one spewing from the oven!
