How to clean that greasy stove vent

Q. My cherry kitchen cabinets are very greasy above the stove. How can I clean them? Also, there seems to be a vent in the ceiling that I don’t know where it’s going, and I can’t see anything outside. But that vent is greasy too, and needs cleaning. Is the grease a fire hazard?
