Put a Freeze on Winter Holiday Fires

More than half of the home decoration fires in December are started by candles.

More than 1/3 of home decoration fires are started by candles.

The top 3 days for home candle fires are Christmas Day, New Year’s Day and New Year’s Eve.

Keep candles at least 12 inches away from anything that burns.

Although Christmas tree fires are not common, when they do occur, they are dangerous.

On average, 1 of every 45 reported home Christmas tree fires resulted in death.
