The Bullhead Fire Department urges residents to exercise fire safety through the holiday season. According to the National Fire Protection Association, between 2013 and 2017, U.S. fire departments responded to an average of 160 home structure fires caused by Christmas trees while responding to an estimated average of 780 home structure fires per year that began with decorations. The NFPA advised that heat sources too close to the tree caused one in every four Christmas tree fires. Following these safety tips, this holiday season will help to prevent a tree-related fire in your home.
