I usually post something like this around the holidays, because it's so important to refresh everyone's minds about tree safety!
Just the tiniest flame or flicker can be deadly. The flames of a Christmas tree on fire spread with incredible speed. This contained burn was set up by authorities in Florida to demonstrate just how a quickly a little flicker can turn into a holiday inferno.
To guard against this, Christmas trees should be watered daily and disposed of after the holiday season.
And as always, make sure your smoke detectors are working properly.
