Keep this Thanksgiving a fire-safe one by using extra caution in the kitchen tomorrow. That’s the main message behind KCWY13-TV’s local news coverage on Thanksgiving safety, which reinforces the increased potential for cooking fires, along with tips and recommendations for ensuring a fire-safe holiday.

A special thanks to Justin Smith, captain of Fire-EMS in Casper, Wyoming, and chair of the Wyoming Fire Sprinkler Coalition, who was interviewed for this story and helped ensure that accurate statistics and safety recommendations were included.

Have a happy, fire-safe Thanksgiving, everyone!
