Make sure your fireplace has a good screen to keep any sparks from flying into the room.
If you do use candles or other open flames in your decorations, blow them out when you leave the room or go to sleep.
Choose holiday decorations that are flame resistant, and keep anything that can burn THREE feet away from any heat source.
Live Christmas trees
Water live trees daily and dispose of them after Christmas or when they become dry. Dry trees are a fire hazard – don’t leave them in or against your home or garage.
Check your holiday lights
Use only holiday lights that have been tested by an independent laboratory, and check for signs of wear or damage before putting them up each year.
Hanging holiday lights
Follow the manufacturer’s instructions regarding indoor/outdoor use, and the maximum number of lights to string together.
