The National Fire Protection Association says grills sparked an average of 82-hundred house fires in the U.S. per year, between 2005 and 2009. So, before you throw those burgers and dogs on the flames, follow a few safety guidelines.


  • Make sure the grill is well away from your home or garage.
  • Also check to make sure deck railings and low hanging branches are a safe distance away.
  • Keep children and pets away.
  • Never leave your grill unattended.
