One of the latest trends in Thanksgiving Day preparations is deep frying the festive bird.
With that trend comes some concerns from local fire officials. Clinton Fire Chief David Dallas says a couple things to be aware of when deep frying a turkey is to make sure the bird is completely thawed and to make sure the deep fryer doesn't have too much oil.
Chief Dallas also encourages making sure the deep fryer is on a stable and flat surface. He notes deep fryers can tip easily if they are on an unstable surface.
