Having a barbeque this Memorial Day weekend? The NFPA is reminding the public to use safe grilling practices as the peak months for grilling fires approach (June and July). Gas grills constitute a higher risk, having been involved in an annual average of 6,200 home fires in 2004-2008, while charcoal or other solid-fueled grills were involved in an annual average of 1,300 home fires.

NFPA offers many tips on grilling safety, as well as specific tips for gas grills and charcoal grills.
