Most turkey fryer fires are preventable. Recognizing common mistakes is a critical step in reducing your risk of a fire or potentially fatal burns.

•More than one-third of fires involving a fryer start in a garage or patio. Cook outdoors at a safe distance from any buildings or trees and keep the fryer off any wooden structures, such as a deck or patio.
•Avoid a hot oil spill over by first filling the pot with cold oil and then lower the thawed turkey into the pot to determine how much oil should be either added or removed.
•Shut off the fuel source or flame when adding the turkey to the hot oil to prevent a dangerous flare-up if oil does spill over the rim.
•Make sure your turkey is properly thawed before lowering it slowly into the pot.
•Never leave a hot turkey fryer unattended.
•Do not use ice or water to cool down oil or extinguish an oil fire.
•Keep an extinguisher approved for cooking or grease fire nearby.

When mistakes are made, fires do happen. The Illinois State Fire Association put together this video with State Farm Insurance.
