A turkey fryer fire almost ruined Thanksgiving for one Security family. It happened in the backyard of a home at 5150 Quill Drive. Luckily no one was hurt. The house was also not damaged.

Angelo Romero shot video of the backyard fire seconds after it started. He told me it sounded like a hot air balloon. He looked outside his window and then noticed his neighbor's backyard in flames.

Angelina Guitierrez also told me she heard a shoowshing big explosion and ran into her Aunt's back yard. She says the tree adn the entire back yard seemed to be in flames.

Guiterrez says at first, neighbors were trying to put out the turkey fryer fire with a home garden hose. Security fire crews got to the home and quickly put it out.
