|Get your grill on- safely|

Labor Day weekend may be winding down, but there’s still time for burgers.
Paul Buchanan from the Watauga County Fire Marshal’s Office has some tips for a safe Labor Day barbeque.
Start with a complete clean grill- and just to be safe, grill away from structures.
With the burning ban, it’s particularly important, he says, not to endanger the surrounding area. A woodsfire would be detrimental to your holiday plans.
Only use appropriate flammable liquids, and be careful what kind of lighter you use.
Try a long-tipped lighter to avoid burning yourself.
Clean up when you’re finished- and if using gas, disconnect the tank in case of a leak.
And- NEVER leave a grill unattended.
