-Keep an eye on what you fry

-Never fry a turkey under a carport or structure

-Stand by your pan

-Wear short sleeves or roll up sleeves

-Keep cooking area clean and free of anything that may catch on fire such as oven

mitts, wooden utensils, food packing and towels

-Turn pot handles toward the back of the stove

-Keep a pan lid or baking sheet nearby and use it to cover the pan if it catches on fire

-Check smoke detectors and make sure to you have an ABC fire extinguisher and know how to use it.

“You can also create a kid-free zone,” says Biloxi Fire Deputy Chief Caleb Hudson. “It could be at least three feet and include areas where hot food or drinks are prepared or carried.”

Added Deputy Chief Hudson: “If there is a fire, just get out. When you leave, close the door behind you to help contain the fire and call 911 outside the home.”
