ROANOKE, Va. (WDBJ) - Thanksgiving is a fun time to gather with friends and family, but a cooking mishap can ruin everything - and could cause injury or a disastrous fire.

He addressed grease fires and oven fires and the best ways to handle them. He also mentioned distractions, and during the holidays, there are many - which is an easy way for fires to start.
