In the interest of everyone having a safe and enjoyable Thanksgiving grilling season, @unifiedfire would like to share some information on open flame cooking devices.

Did you know-
Gas and charcoal grills cause 900 structure fires and 3,500 outdoor fires in or on home properties each year?
.
Gas grills have a higher fire risk than charcoal grills; leaks and breaks are the leading cause, accounting for nearly half of gas grill fires.
.
Placing combustibles too close to heat, and leaving cooking unattended, are the two leading causes for charcoal grill home fires.
.
Half of all gas grill and charcoal grill home fires begin on an exterior balcony or unenclosed porch. Grill not only outside your home but away from your home.

Fast acting neighbor’s ensured that all occupants were out of the house, after witnessing a branch fall onto power lines and spark off a significant house fire on this windy Saturday.

Thanks to their quick actions, and fast response time by first in fire crews, nobody was injured in this wind fueled fire.
Crews were able to quickly extinguish the flames before they spread to adjacent properties. Many thanks to @murraycityfire @sandy_fire_department and @unifiedpolicedepartment for their support.

We’re being released from the
S. Obenchain Fire , as cooperative weather and lots of hard work has calmed the fire down.

The state Incident Management Team has reassigned to the Slater Fire, near the community of Cave Junction, we should arrive by lunch tomorrow.

Our Utah Task Force of Structure engines already arrived there today, and will brief us upon arrival.

Oregon has suffered serious loss in these devastating fires, and we hope to be able to provide help on this next incident.

Nights on the fire line are often a surreal experience. The beauty is undeniable, and flames mesmerizing, all with the stark contrast of destruction and danger.

Pictured here;
Firefighters off of Unified Fire’s Type 6 engine, E-6118, keep an eye on the fire line to ensure no stray embers float across the line.
It is fairly mellow work, until a spot fire breaks out and the crews have to hit it hard and fast to keep the fire from making a run.

Dangers include poison oak everywhere, fatigue, and the ever present danger of burnt-out snags collapsing as fire weakens them.

We are all feeling thankful for the fact that we’re safe and in good health, as we continue to work on the Elkhorn Fire west of Red Bluff, California.

Last night our Task Force laid 4,000’ of hose after midnight. All while several active fires gained momentum in the background.

Our thoughts are with everyone working to fight these incidents, especially those who have given everything in an effort to do so.
...

Just a quick look at what our Task Force responding to the California fires has been up to. They’re a week into the deployment, with no indication that the work is going to slow down. ...

It is with great sadness we share that retired firefighter Chris Cage has passed away after a difficult battle with cancer attributed to his rescue and recovery efforts of 9/11. Chris was able to spend his final days at home with his family, for which they are grateful. Chris spent 31 years serving our department and retired in September of 2016. You will be missed brother. ...

House fire today in @cottonwoodheights

Upon arrival, the garage and back deck were fully involved. Crews immediately took a defensive stance and fought the fire from a protected position. Once conditions improved, crews quickly searched the home for a report of two missing dogs. During the search the crews came across both dogs who unfortunately didn’t make it. Our heavy rescue crew attempted to revive both dogs with no such luck. To the family affected by your losses, our hearts are with you.

Pranks, jokes and gags - all in the name of fun! Whether it is to relieve the stress of the job or simply to break up a long shift, pranks and jokes are a time-honored tradition in the fire service and for a good and healthy reason.

Happy 29th birthday to one of our newest recruit graduates @madisonfivas 🎉

Ps. Never allow your crew members to know your birthday....exhibit A ⬆️
