Christmas Tree Fires

Christmas Tree Fires

The holiday season tends to have the most house fires. Some of these fires are started by Christmas trees. There are many ways that Christmas tree fires get started. One most frequent reason is due to electrical problems. There have been instances where an extension cord has failed while under pressure of an object and causes a fire. With real trees there are many precautions and care that needs to be given.  Watering the Christmas tree daily is absolutely necessary because if the water level drops below the cut end of the tree no water can be absorbed. Dry trees are the biggest culprit in these fires because they can burn faster than newspaper, causing the fire to spread rapidly. One in 31 Christmas tree fires is deadly. Keep your family safe in your Greenford home by making sure string lights have no loose connections, using a single extension cord that isn’t longer than needed, use UL- approved lights, turn off lights before bed, water the tree daily, and keep candles away from the tree.
