One fryer fire and one propane grill fire in MD, no fatalities.

Don't know, but it was the first thought that crossed my mind today when the local VFD came roaring down the road, sirens a 'screamin this afternoon!

It's not like a big tub of super heated oil in your garage could start a fire or anything, right?

It should be illegal to cook turkey any other way

Found one, 80K in damage! Hold My Beer...

A deep-frying turkey is to blame for a fire that caused $80,000 damage to a Crystal Lake garage, officials said today.

Firefighters with the Crystal Lake Fire Rescue Department were called to the home on the 700 block of Windsor Drive at about noon, fire officials said.

When they arrived they found smoke and flames coming from the garage of the home, officials said.

Only pussies cook in the garage. Real men do it in the living room so none of the game is missed.

Is there something about a frozen turkey that makes it explode worse than a regular turkey, or are the legends just caused by overflowing the superheated oil?

Water and Super Heated Oil...

Physics...How does it work?

I saw EMA roll out this afternoon. I assume it was fryer fire

how hard is it to turn off the burner while you are putting the bird in the oil????

I live on a busy road that leads to a bunch of large neighborhoods. Beginning yesterday evening the fire trucks have been rolling by with lights and sirens about every hour.

Yeah...this isn't quite rocket science.

Thoroughly thaw turkey. Dry turkey off.

Problem solved.

Deep frying a pound of bacon in the oil first is my preferred method, btw....

One turkey fryer "explosion", one turkey fryer fire.
