BBQ Season is upon us.

It’s that time of the year again, BBQ season; everyone loves this time of the year when they get to spent it with friends and family outside grilling up some tasty meals. Before you start up that grill, let’s make use you are prepared to grill safely.

According to the National Fire Protection Association  http://www.nfpa.org/news-and-research/fire-statistics-and-reports/fire-statistics/fire-causes/appliances-and-equipment/home-grill-fires

In 2009-2013, U.S. fire departments responded to an average of 8,900 home fires involving grills, hibachis, or barbecues per year. This includes structure fires and outside or unclassified fires on home properties.

These 8,900 fires caused annual averages of 10 civilian deaths, 160 reported civilian injuries, and $118 million in direct property damage. Almost all the losses resulted from structure fires.

Five out of six (83%) grills involved in home fires were fueled by gas while 13% used charcoal or other solid fuel.

The leading causes of grill fires were a failure to clean, having the grill too close to something that could catch fire and leaving the grill unattended.

A leak or break was the leading cause for outside or unclassified grill fires. Leaks or breaks were primarily a problem with gas grills.
