Q… Historically there are more of these in Texas on Thanksgiving than anywhere else… what is it?
A… Fires or explosions caused by frying turkeys.
A lot of people think deep-fried turkey is the ONLY way to eat turkey. Unfortunately, it's also BY FAR the riskiest way to eat turkey.
According to State Farm insurance, fire departments are called to at least 1,000 MAJOR FIRES or EXPLOSIONS because of turkey frying accidents every Thanksgiving. And those fires cause more than $15 MILLION in property damage.
From 2007 through last year, the state where the most people BLEW THEMSELVES UP or set themselves or their house on fire during turkey frying was . . . Texas.
The rest of the top 10 states with the most turkey frying disasters are: Illinois, New York, Ohio, Florida, California, Louisiana, Pennsylvania, Minnesota, and South Carolina.
State Farm also says the number one thing you can do to avoid starting an accidental turkey frying fire is to cook a safe distance away from your home . . . DON'T set up the fryer in
your garage or on your patio.
