Firefighters are gearing up for one of their busiest days of the year.

An estimated 1,300 Thanksgiving Day fires were reported to U.S. fire departments in 2010, three times more than any other day of the year.

Over the last several years, turkey fryer fires have contributed significantly to the increase in cooking fires. The use of turkey fryers can lead to severe burns, damage to homes.
