LOCAL NEWS-
Thanksgiving means that a lot of people will be spending time in their kitchen preparing delicious meals for family and friends. According to the National Fire Protection Association, Thanksgiving is the peak day for home cooking fires. In 2014, cooking equipment was involved in almost half of all reported home fires. Crookston Fire Chief Tim Froeber says the most common issue they’ve seen deals with carbon monoxide. “We end up with a lot of carbon monoxide calls from people cooking inside with gas stoves,” Froeber mentioned. “With cooking going on in the house and people lighting candles, that carbon monoxide starts to build up. Fire and gas stoves and any kind of cooking appliances can contribute to that. Those are probably the most frequent calls that we get.”
More and more people are deep frying their turkeys now, but it hasn’t been as big of an issue locally as far as safety is concerned. “In my career, we’ve only had one instance where a person tried to deep fry a turkey inside of their garage and had an issue,” Froeber said.
