Thanksgiving is the peak day for home cooking fires. Danbury Fire officials say kitchen fires are the number one reason for fires in single-and-two family homes across the country. They are mostly due to unattended cooking. Danbury Fire officials say deep frying turkeys is a popular cooking method on Thanksgiving, but it's dangerous. Too often people try this in their garage, but it they say it should be done far from the house, and not on a wooden deck. That's so if the fryer does tip over, the fire will not spread to the house. Grease is also a scalding issue if it splashes out of the fryer.
