Fire safety during the holidays

The National Fire Protection Association wants to remind you that with the holidays comes a greater risk for house fires.

More than a third of home decoration fires are started by candles, according to the group’s news release. And 42% of those fires happen because decorations are placed too close to a heat source.

To prevent any accidental flames, the association recommends turning off all string lights and decorations before leaving home or going to bed, keeping candles away from flammable decorations, testing smoke alarms and using clips instead of nails to hang lights.
