Three people escape Thanksgiving day house fire

VIDEO: Here's what happens when you deep fry a frozen turkey

In 2015, USA fire departments responded to an estimated 1,760 home cooking fires on Thanksgiving, the peak day for such fires.

"It is one of the more common fires that we go to", said Captain Jonathan Christian with Temple Fire and Rescue.

No one was injured in the fire, but a family of five is without a home this Thanksgiving.

"There has been a bunch.a lot of local fires lately".

Blakely also said it's important to follow the manufacturer's instructions on how much oil to put in, and the kind an temperature of the oil.

If something on your stove top does catch fire, make sure you have the lids to the pots or a baking sheet near by.


Place the turkey fryer on a level surface, in an open area away from homes, fences, sheds and other structures.

According to the U.S. Fire Administration around 2,000 fires are reported to the U.S. Fire Department each year, and most of the fires are started in the kitchen. If you leave the kitchen for even a short time, turn off the stove. "Fire needs three things to burn air and and heat are two of them and something to burn that's the third ingredient of a fire", Hartung said. "The last thing we want to see is your holiday ruined by a devastating fire".

· Keep children and pets away from the portable deep fryer. "Most of that unattended cooking is frying and sauteing". If there is a grease fire, don't use water. So, we went to the Hattiesburg Fire Department for a quick reminder on safety tips for before getting in the kitchen.

To prevent those fires and deaths from happening, the NFPA and the Red Cross both have comprehensive lists of safety tips for holiday cooking.

Santa Barbara County Fire says it's good to have the furnace inspected a professional and the filter swapped out before using the heater. Make sure the turkey is thawed and dry, turn off the burner, then lower the turkey into the oil.
