Illinois Fire Marshal Provides Thanksgiving Cooking Tips

The Illinois State Fire Marshal’s Office is offering safe cooking tips for Thanksgiving. Spokesperson JC Fultz says you should never leave food that is boiling, grilling, or broiling unattended. He added that kids should be kept three-feet from the stove. Fultz mentioned another potential hazard is using a turkey fryer, which should only be used outside and the turkey needs to be fully thawed.
