Christmas Tree with SERVPRO logo All it takes is a dry tree and an electrical spark to turn your Holidays from magic to tragic. Avoid fire damage this season with these simple tips.

Did you know that more than 1 out of every 5 Christmas tree fires are caused by the tree being placed too close to a heat source?

Something about Christmas Trees and Holiday lights brings a warm and magical feeling to the Holiday Season.  That magic can quickly turn tragic if a fire breaks out and sets your home and belongings ablaze.

To avoid a fire emergency, follow these Christmas Tree safety tips and enjoy the magic of this Holiday Season safely.

  • Make sure your Christmas tree is at least 3 feet away from heat sources like fireplaces, radiators, space heaters, candles or heat vents.
  • A dry tree can burn very hot and very fast! Be sure to keep your tree adequately watered.
  • Trim the stump at least 2” on freshly cut trees to allow it to absorb the water.
  • DO NOT overload light strands or electrical wall sockets.
  • Check all light strands for missing bulbs, broken or frayed wires.
  • Always turn off tree lights when leaving home or going to bed.
