St. Petersburg Fire Rescue has shared the following turkey fryer safety tips-

  • Never use turkey fryers indoors, in a garage or too close to any structure.
  • Ensure turkey is completely frozen if using a fryer.
  • Always stay in the kitchen while cooking, never leave food unattended.
  • Never use your oven for storage.
