  1. Only use your grill outside. Keep it at least 3 feet from siding, deck rails, and eaves.
  2. Keep a 3-foot safe zone around your grill. This will keep kids and pets safe.
  3. Open your gas grill before lighting.
  4. Keep an eye on your grill, fire pit, or patio torches. Do not walk away from them when they are lit.
  5. Clean your grill after each user. This will remove grease that can start a fire.

Place the coals from your grill in a metal can with a lid once they have cooled.
