Experts say to do the following:

  • Make sure your grill is pulled away from the house when it is being used so it does not melt the siding.
  • Remove any grease or food build up on the cooking surface because it can start a fire.
  • Remember that water and oil do not mix with grease.
  • Have a fire extinguisher that’s properly rated for application.
  • Make sure kids stay away from flames and hot surfaces.
