According to the US Fire Administration, over half of home grill fires start on patios, terraces, screened-in and unenclosed porches, balconies, and courtyards. These home grill fires cause an estimated $37 million in property loss each year.

Also, according to the US Fire Protection Agencies, July (17%) was the peak month for grill fires, followed by June (14%), May (13%) and August (12%) and in roughly one-quarter of grill fires, the grill had not been cleaned.

The most important things you can do to prevent grill fires are to:

 

  • Never grill on on the second floor or higher and never grill on an enclosed porch or patio.
  • Only use grills outdoors, away from siding and deck railings.
  • Clean grills often and remove grease or fat build-up.
  • Make sure your gas grill lid is open before lighting.
  • Have a 3-foot safe-zone around grills and keep kids and pets away from the area.
  • Dispose of coals after they have cooled in a metal can.
  • Never leave grills, fire pits and patio torches unattended.
