Thanksgiving Fire Prevention
Thanksgiving is seriously and without a doubt my favorite holiday. I cannot get enough turkey and mashed potatoes. However every year it seems more and more fires are occurring at this time of thanks and family. The number one culprit is those pesky turkey fryers. Trust me when I say I love deep-fried turkey, but there are some safety measures to take before frying your turkey.
The first and most important is having a nice open area outside to fry your turkey. Never fry it inside, and I mean NEVER. Secondly is make sure to have a fire extinguisher that is rated for oil nearby. Finally and also incredibly important, make sure your turkey is completely thawed and wiped off of any excess water. If you have any doubts that the turkey is not 100% thawed, then do not put it in the oil.
