Local News

The Davenport Fire Department held a demonstration on Tuesday to show the dangers that can be associated with frying a turkey.

The National Fire Protection Association says six people died and 60 suffered injuries with Thanksgiving cooking last year.

Davenport Fire Chief Jim Morris says if you plan to fry a turkey, it’s best to set up the fryer at least 10 feet from any combustible objects.
