PEARL, Miss. (WJTV) — Frying is a popular way to prepare a Thanksgiving Turkey. There are ways to do it safely… and ways to not.
Insurance Commissioner and State Fire Marshal Mike Chaney explained that a staggering number of kitchen fires start every year on Thanksgiving, due to improper frying of turkeys — all of which could be easily avoided.
A demonstration was held Monday afternoon showing how dangerous it is to fry a turkey with an overflowing pot of oil and a turkey that is not thawed out.
12 News’ Kate Cornell will have full details on how to play it safe this Thanksgiving.
