It’s late on a Wednesday afternoon before Thanksgiving.
Perhaps you’re starting to get ready for a Wednesday night out at the bars with your fellow locals. Or mentally preparing for a long day of parades, football, cooking, eating and dishwashing with family.
Whatever you’re doing, ARLnow hopes you have a fun and safe Thanksgiving. Lest anyone forget, here are some turkey frying safety tips from ACFD:
The ACFD has some safety reminders ahead Thanksgiving
If frying a turkey, make sure that it is fully thawed, your fryer is on a sturdy and level surface, and that it is at LEAST 15 feet from your home. NEVER leave the fryer unattended. For more tips, visit https://t.co/tfvSHxGjg2

ARLnow will not be publishing tomorrow unless there’s major breaking news. We’ll have a lighter-than-normal publishing schedule for Friday.
