Be safe in the kitchen when cooking your holiday meal

Why Thanksgiving Day has the highest number of cooking fires of the year

Thanksgiving is the leading day for cooking fires in homes across the country according to the National Fire Protection Association which is offering tips so you can enjoy a safe holiday.

Cooking equipment was involved in nearly half of all reported home fires and home fire injuries, and it is the second leading cause of home fire deaths, it added.

- Deep-frying turkeys: Turkey fryers that immerse the turkey in cooking oil at high temperatures pose a significant danger of hot oil being released or spilled during cooking, leading to devastating burns, other injuries and property destruction.

" If you burn candles, never leave them unattended". The organization believes the fryers that use cooking oil are not suitable for use at home, no matter how well-informed or careful the consumer may be.

Here's something you can warn your eccentric uncle about this Thanksgiving: Russian trolls invading his Facebook page. Russia's campaign to meddle in the USA election reached 126 million people through 80,000 posts on Facebook .

The video above shows you what happens when you try to deep-fry a frozen turkey. This way, you won't forget about the bird as you watch the parade or football.

Never let children or pets near the fryer, even if it is not in use. "If you prefer to use a turkey fryer, consider switching to the newer units available, electric or infrared models that are much safer than the turkey fryers that use oil".

Keep an all-purpose fire extinguisher nearby. Make sure your turkey is completely thawed before you fry it.
