WTWO/WAWV Terre Haute Ind.– Fire officials are warning families to “take it outside” this year.
Frying turkeys are one of the most dangerous ways of cooking the iconic bird, but more and more families seem to be adding it to their tradition.
Assistant Fire Chief Norm Loudermilk said, he too takes part in frying turkey but knows first hand the dangers of it.
“Accidents happen, and when they do, call the fire department. Even if you think the situation is handled,” said Loudermilk.
