Mississippi Firefighters Demonstrate Dangers of Deep Frying Turkey

Ahead of Thanksgiving, firefighters in Mississippi have demonstrated the potential dangers of deep frying a turkey, putting a frozen bird in oil, and sharing video of the dramatic results.

This footage was published by the City of Gulfport Mayor’s Office.

Fire Chief Billy Kelley said the demonstration showed “what not to do” and reminded people to completely thaw and dry their turkeys before cooking. “The last thing we want to be doing is to show up on Thanksgiving where someone’s got hurt,” he said.
