Thanksgiving is only 24 days away!!! Are you ready to host family and friends around your table?

Here are some tips:

Prepare for the Feast

Plan ahead. The key to minimizing holiday-induced anxiety is to plan in advance. Take inventory now to make sure you have the essentials you will need to serve your holiday meal - both basics and serving pieces.

Save time and space. Use serving pieces with warming trays to free up essential cooking space on your stove. To create additional space in your oven, use a three-tier oven rack on one side that leaves the other side open for more bulky food allowing you to cook more than one dish at a time.

House Fire in Julington Creek

ST. JOHNS COUNTY, Fla. -- Firefighters from two jurisdictions responded to a house fire that left one fire fighter with minor injuries and a house heavily damaged in the Julington Creek area.

According to Jeremy Robshaw with St. Johns County Fire Rescue, the fire broke out this morning at a home on Forest Hollow Way.

When firefighters responded, the garage was "fully involved," Robshaw said, so they worked to contain the damage.

Robshaw said they were able to contain the fire "relatively quickly," keeping most of the damage to the garage, and people are inside now determining what is salvageable.

Nobody in the house was injured, though one firefighter sustained a minor injury.

He was treated at the scene and is okay, Robshaw said.

The cause of the fire is under investigation by the state fire marshal's office and by St. Johns County Fire Rescue.
