Christmas tree fires aren’t common, but they cause an average of two deaths, 12 injuries and $10 million in direct property damage each year.
You can take steps to prevent Christmas tree fires by:
- Placing the tree at least three feet away from any heat source.
- Avoiding blocking an exit with your Christmas tree.
- Continuing to add water to your tree stand every day.
- Not leaving your tree in your home or garage longer than necessary.
- Not placing your tree outside against a structure.
