Keep Your Tree Safe Throughout the Holiday Season

Although Christmas tree fires are not common, the U.S. Fire Administration (USFA) says they are more likely to be serious.


Keep your trees watered.  Dry and uncared for trees can catch fire from a short in electrical lights. They can also catch fire from lit candles, lighters, and matches.


Before your tree becomes an issue, be fire smart with these USFA tips:

  • Place the tree away from heat sources and exits.
  • Use only decorations that will not catch fire.
  • Inspect lights for worn wires or other defects before use.
  • Always keep an eye on tree lights. Turn off lights at night.
  • Keep natural tree stands filled with water at all times. Do not let your tree dry out. 
  • If the tree becomes dry, remove it.
