When the warmer weather hits, there's nothing better than the smell of food on the grill! But it also means there's an increased risk of home fires. According to the National Fire Protection Association, an average of 8,800 home fires are caused by grilling each year. To avoid grilling fires at your home, consider these helpful tips:
1. Place your grill away from the home, deck railings, and overhanging branches.
2. Keep your grill clean by removing grease and buildup.
3. When using a charcoal grill, let the coals completely cool before disposing of in a metal container.
4. Never add charcoal fluid or other flammable liquids to the fire.
