According to a 2016 report from the NFPA, grills are responsible for 8,900 residential fires every year, and gas grills account for more fires than charcoal grills. Safe grilling: Place all cooking equipment on a sturdy surface away from railings, eaves, and low tree branches;  Place a spray bottle nearby for small flames on the grill;  Always open a gas grill lid before lighting to prevent the buildup of potentially explosive fumes;  If you use a nonstick spray for your grill grates, spray the grill before you start it, and then remove spray from the cooking area  A&A Fire and Safety Company is here to help you stay safe.  Call today! 501-834-5353
