Consider implementing some simple, yet significant, precautionary measures that help prevent fires in your home. Never leave stoves unattended and always keep your countertops free of flammable cooking products, objects, or supplies. Remain as safe as possible, maintaining a clean, sanitary, and disaster-free cooking environment in your home.
Ask a qualified professional, like those offered at SERVPRO, how to handle or store propane, coal, or accelerants used for grilling correctly. Getting advice specific to your situation can help you avoid injury, death, or extensive damage that can cause your family to lose more than their home.
