Easton Volunteer Fire Department is offering some tips and reminders so that firefighters aren't unexpected guests this Thanksgiving. Anyone deep frying a turkey should make sure it's completely thawed and dry before being slowly lowered into the vat. The fryer should be set up outdoors more than 10 feet from the home. Firefighters say everyone should have a multipurpose, Dry Powdered Fire Extinguisher ready in case oil ignites. Oil and water don’t mix and should not be used to extinguish a grease fire or to cool down oil.
