 Cooking fires are the number one cause of home fires and home injuries. Based on data from State Farm, more cooking fires occur on Thanksgiving than any other day of the year. The good news is that State Farm cooking fire claims on Thanksgiving Day have been reduced from 66 claims in 2010 to 29 claims in 2012, the lowest number of claims in a decade.  While the reduction is significant, the fact remains there are still injuries and damage to property as a result of turkey frying or cooking fires each year. November is the number one month for grease and cooking related fire and December is the second highest month.

According to State Farm Insurance claims data, the top states for grease and cooking-related claims on Thanksgiving Day (2005-2012) are Texas, Illinois, Pennsylvania, Ohio, New York, South Carolina, Georgia, Minnesota, Michigan, California, Indiana, Louisiana, and Florida.  Most turkey fryer and cooking fires are preventable. Recognizing common mistakes is a critical step in reducing your risk of a fire or potentially fatal burns. Before you break out your bird this holiday season, remember to hang on a minute and do it right.

The leading cause of fires in the kitchen is unattended cooking. It's important to be alert to prevent cooking fires. 

Some important tips include having a "kid-free zone" of at least 3 feet around the stove and areas where hot food or drink is prepared or carried. keeping anything that can catch fire - oven mitts, wooden utensils, food packaging, towels or curtains - away from your stovetop, and keeping an extinguisher approved for cooking or grease fire nearby.  Furthermore, 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. Also, 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.  Keep in mind to 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, don't use ice or water to cool down oil or extinguish an oil fire, and keep an extinguisher approved for cooking or grease fire nearby.
