Facts about home holiday fires
One of every four home Christmas tree fires is caused by electrical problems. Although Christmas tree fires are not common, when they do occur, they are more likely to be serious. On average, one of every 32 reported home Christmas tree fires results in a death compared to an average of one death per 143 total reported home fires. A heat source too close to the tree causes one in every four Christmas tree fires. The top three days for home candle fires are Christmas, New Year’s Day, and Christmas Eve. Candles start two out of five home decoration structure fires.
This holiday season, consider using battery-operated flameless candles. More on holiday fire safety: here
