Don’t fry this at home: A turkey in the deep fryer often leads to fire

LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) — For those planning to deep-fry a turkey for Thanksgiving, Lincoln Fire & Rescue would prefer you didn’t.

Cooking fires tend to spike during the holiday season, so LFR asks everyone to take extra care in the kitchen and avoid using oil fryers.

If you really want fried turkey this Thursday, you could purchase a pre-fried turkey or use an air fryer.

Oil fires spread easily and can cause severe burns to skin and significant damage to property.
