TOWSON, MD (Tuesday, November 26, 2019) –– AAA is urging all cooks to take extra precautions today because Thanksgiving is, by far, the number one day for home fires. In fact, according to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), on average, there are three times as many house fires on Thanksgiving compared to every other day of the year.

AAA is raising awareness around Thanksgiving house fires because prevention is key.”
