Fires Resulting from Frying Turkeys

According to the National Fire Protection Agency, deep fryer fires cause
  • 5 deaths
  • 60 injuries
  • $15 million in property damages
As a reminder, please exercise caution when frying a turkey. Make sure your turkey is completely thawed and pat it dry to reduce flair ups from water hitting the hot oil. Use a thermometer to accurately check the temperature of your oil. Keep a fire extinguisher handy at all times when frying your turkey.

Here is another video to remind you of the potential for disaster if you are not careful.
