Put a freeze on Winter Holiday Fires

  • Half of the home decoration fires in December are started by candles.
  • More than 1/3 of home decoration fires are started by candles.
  • Christmas is the peak day for candle fires.
  • Keep candles at least 12 inches away from anything that burns.
  • A dry Christmas tree can burn very hot and very fast.
  • More than 1 in every 5 Christmas tree fires were caused by a heat source too close to the tree.
  • Read manufacturer’s instructions for the number of light strands to connect.
  • Make sure your tree is at least 3 feet away from heat sources like fireplaces, radiators, space heaters, candles, or heat vents. Also, make sure your tree does not block exits.
  • Get rid of your tree after Christmas or when it is dry.

From all of us at SERVPRO of Evanston, be safe, and Happy Holidays!
