The leading causes of grill fires were a failure to clean, having the grill too close to something that could catch fire and leaving the grill unattended. Help prevent outdoor cooking fires!
Only use grills outdoor, away from siding and deck railings.
Glean grills often and remove grease or fat build-up.
Make sure your gas grill lid is open before lighting.
Have a three foot safe-zone around grills and campfires. Keep kids and pets clear of the area.
Dispose of coals after they have cooled in a metal can.
Never leave grills, fire pits and patio torches unattended.
