Springtime Grill Fire Safety

3/23/2020 (Permalink)

We are getting very close to the spring season, and with that comes warmer weather. We can’t wait to get outside to enjoy the temperature and new growth that this time has to offer.  With the beginning of spring, there are specific fire dangers that are unique to this time of year.  We leave behind the dangers associated with wood stoves, furnaces, and Christmas trees, but there are things to watch out for that could cause fire damage in the coming months.

A popular springtime activity is grilling.  But after a long time being unused, your grill could present a fire hazard.  Fire departments respond to over 10,000 fires that originated from a grill, with 4,500 of them causing damage to surrounding structures.  Unfortunately, these fires also caused a yearly average of 10 deaths.

Clean your grill of any debris that it may have accumulated, whether in storage or outside.  This will reduce the risk of fire damage, as well as keep your food safe as you cook it.  Make sure the propane tank is still correctly installed.  Leaking propane is an easy way to start a fire, as well as cause injury to those around it.

If you happen to suffer from a springtime fire, give SERVPRO of Norwalk/Wilton a call at (203) 324-1642.  We are available 24/7 to provide assistance.
