VALDOSTA— With July 4th right around the corner, the Valdosta Fire Department released a brief list of tips on fire safety when grilling:

  • When grilling, maintain at least 10-12 ft. away from any structure.
  • When using charcoal, make sure it’s extinguished entirely by wetting and mixing the pile. This way, the charcoal can’t reignite later.
  • When using gas, make sure the gas line is secure and doesn’t leak. Also, ensure that the tank isn’t ruptured or dented.
  • If the fire goes out on the grill, wait a full minute before relighting it.
  • Never leave the grill unattended.
