Greenville Fire & Rescue demo turkey fry

Posted: Updated:

93 percent of American families will be eating turkey on Thursday.
    
And every year, more and more people try to deep fry the bird instead of cooking it in the oven.

But that can be dangerous.
    
Greenville Fire and Rescue demonstrated some of the problems with turkey frying on Monday.
    
Don't fry a frozen bird, fry inside, or let your oil get too hot.
    
Simple precautionary steps could mean the difference in a happy thanksgiving and a call to the insurance agency.

Every year, the National Fire Protection Association says deep-fryer fires are responsible for five deaths, 60 injuries, 900 destroyed homes, and more than $15 million in property damage.
