From the National Fire Protection Association

  • 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.
