With less than a week until Thanksgiving, the Nashville Fire Department wanted to give everyone a little turkey frying demonstration.

The demonstration was held just after 6 a.m. Friday at the Fire Training Academy on Buena Vista Pike.

It was a way to show people in our area what not to do when frying a turkey with the hope everyone will stay safe this holiday season.

Residential fires almost double on Thanksgiving compared to most other days of the year, according to the US Fire Administration. 

Many of us have heard that you never want to put a frozen turkey into the fryer, and the fire department showed us why.
