When those facts in mind, what can you do to prevent a fire from Christmas decorations?
The Consumer Product Safety commission offers several tips:
Make sure your tree is green and well watered. A dry tree will more easily start fires.
If you light strings have seen a few to many Christmases, make sure all the bulbs are intact and functioning properly. Broken bulbs and shorts in the strings can lead to fire.
Turn off all the decoration lights when you leave the house or go to sleep.
