In 2018, U.S. fire departments responded to an estimated 1,630 home cooking fires on Thanksgiving, the peak day for such fires. Unattended cooking was by far the leading contributing factor in cooking fires and fire deaths.

Have a fire extinguisher nearby. Make sure your vessel is large enough to fit the oil and the turkey. Avoid deep-frying a turkey with stuffing inside.

How do you put out a turkey fire?  
  1. Use well-insulated potholders or oven mitts when touching pot or lid handles.
  2. Wear safety goggles to protect your eyes from oil splatter.
  3. Use a fire extinguisher to put out the fire.
  4. Do NOT use water to put out the fire (oil + water do not mix!)
