Christmas tree fires can turn devastating and deadly within seconds

Christmas is a special time for celebration and should not end in tragedy because of the extra hazards that are present at this time of year.

A dry tree can catch fire and burn faster than newspaper. From 2010 to 2012 there were an estimated annual average of 200 fires where the Christmas tree was the first item ignited, resulting in 10 deaths.

To reduce the severity of a burning tree significantly make sure to water your tree daily.
