MERRILL - Merrill Fire Department wants to remind you to stay safe this Thanksgiving.
Deep-frying a turkey is a popular cooking style, but it's also the most dangerous way to prepare your bird.
You should never leave the fryer unattended because it only takes seconds to boil over.
Turkey fryer explosions can be massive.
Set up the fryer in an open-air space, away from kids and pets.
"Fire can expand at least two times the size every minute. Leaving for two or three minutes? You're looking at a pretty big fire," firefighter and paramedic Phillip Skoug.
For those deer hunters out there, never place your fryer near your canopy.
You should also never leave food cooking in your kitchen untended either.
