by Rachelle Withers on Nov 17, 2015

Did you know, each year between 2011 to 2013, an estimated 2,100 residential building fires were reported to fire departments on Thanksgiving day? They caused an estimated 10 deaths, 50 injuries and $28 million in property loss! (www.usfa.com)

Many of those fires are caused by turkey frying. If you've ever eaten fried turkey, you know it's good! But it can be dangerous!

Here are some informative links from the US Fire Administration for you to read about preventing injury this Thanksgiving holiday!
