Christmas Fire Hazard Warning 23 Dec 13

December is typically the most dangerous time of year when it comes to fire hazards. Deputy State Fire Marshal Becky White says that’s because we’re doing more things in our homes related to fire — things like cooking and lighting candles. White says fireplaces trimmed with flammable decorations can also be potential fire hazards. She’s reminding everyone to be aware of these threats and to test your smoke alarms heading into the holidays.
