Thanksgiving fire demo shows flaming turkey

In an intentional display to warn of what not to do at Thanksgiving dinner, a fire fighter placed the frozen turkey into a cooking pot, before it was engulfed by red hot flames.

"What we were showing here is what not to do," said Billy Kelley, Gulfport fire department chief.

"When cooking turkey, make sure they're completely thawed out...or it will flare up on you and cause a bad day," he added.
