MIG welding near grease? safe?

I broke my vice last night, and the vise has alot of grease caked on over
the years...
I wiped off what I could, but there is still some minor traces of grease.
Asside from the fact that the leftover grease residue may potentially catch
on fire (for a few seconds)
Is there anything else I should be concerned about? Eg: Argon gas near
grease? I don't know enough about this gas stuff..
Thanks ;-)

What is your vice made out of? Cast? That should be more of an issue then any grease, which at worst will run off and then possibly catch fire.
