A study by State Farm ranks Illinois second when it comes to insurance claims filed for cooking accidents on Thanksgiving.

According to the study, Texas ranks first and Ohio is third. The company said more cooking fires happen on Thanksgiving than any other day of the year.

Fire officials say deep frying a turkey is more dangerous than other types of cooking.

The most common mistakes include using too much oil, dropping a frozen turkey into hot oil and placing the fryer too close to structures.
