Who says barbecuing is only great during the warm summer season? Grilling is actually much more fun amidst the cool autumn air as the family huddles over a mini bonfire at night. But as you use your trusty gas grill, it’s still important to consider the dangers and injuries of barbecue grilling.
For example, accidents can happen as you keep the gas running while lighting the burners. Explosions and fires can also start due to gas grill manufacturing defects, propane leaks, poorly installed gas lines, or accidentally breaking the grill and its line.
In fact, the National Fire Protection Association reported about 10,600 cases of home grill accidents that resulted in outdoor fires and the destruction of home structures. Moreover, of this number, about 64% are associated with fire injuries, of which burns and scars were the most prevalent.
