Hoosiers Firing Up Grills This Memorial Day

Last updated on Monday, May 31, 2010

(UNDATED) - Memorial Day weekend marks the first time many Hoosiers are firing up their outdoor grills.

Whether it's propane or charcoal, you should make safety a habit this grilling season.

Some apartment complexes or condo communities restrict the placement of grills on wooden patios, balconies or near shrubbery, so check first.

Positioning a grill too close to vinyl siding can not only melt the siding, but it's a potential fire hazard.

Do not grill on a covered patio or in a garage, even with the doors open.

Carbon monoxide can still build up and it is impossible to detect.
