    I love these helpful tips Andrea…especially the food handling (we often forget about that)! Mine would be to make sure you place your grill, firepit or chiminea at least 15 feet away from the house. I’ve had several friends whose homes caught fire as a result of a breeze blowing the embers toward the home & it going up in flames in no time.
