Grilling safety tips

(WTVM) -

Summer is just around the corner and the state of Georgia is offering a few tips on grilling out.

Ralph Hudgens, Georgia Insurance and Safety Fire Commissioner, says flammable materials should be kept far from the grill.

He adds that grills should be kept at a safe distance from homes and cars.

Hudgens says grills should never be left unattended and children should also be kept at a safe distance.

Also lighter fluid specifically meant to light charcoal - not gasoline - should be used to ignite a grill.
