Think twice before your fry that bird

Thanksgiving is coming Thursday and State Fire Marshal Chuck Duffy wants to remind everyone to please think twice about fire safety while celebrating the holidays. The State Fire Marshal’s Office shares the following information from the Underwriters Laboratories (UL) regarding Turkey Fryers:
