Texas had the highest number of Thanksgiving cooking-related fire claims from 2007 through 2011 according to State Farm Mutual Automobile Insurance.

19 claims came from Texas but we are not alone! Illinois and New York are right behind us with 18 claims and Ohio and Florida with 13.

A big problem for people caught in a deep-fried turkey blaze is being distracted.

Quit dancing to that “Thanksgiving” song by Nicole Westbrook and cook the turkey.

Here are some tips from the CONSUMER PRODUCT SAFETY COMMISSION:

  • Keep fryer in FULL VIEW while burner is on
  • Check the oil temperature frequently
  • If a fire occurs, Call 911. DO NOT attempt to extinguish fire with water
