BBQ, Fireworks And Other Holiday Cautions
I THE GRILL
1 7000 gas grills cause fires in the US annually... from propane gas buildup Some are badly burned
One fireman said
a. don't light a propane BBQ grill with the lid shut... open the lid and let excess gas dissipate
b. take a soapy spray bottle and spray the propane tank... if it bubbles there is excess gas
c. Check all the connections from the tank to the grill to make sure they are secure.
d. Do not pour starter fluid on an already burning charcoal fire
