Winter time for most entails many candles lit, Christmas trees glowing with their pretty lights, and string lights strung along the house. While making your home cozy and comfy for the holidays, these things also come as a hazard to you and your loved ones living there. 

According to the NFPA, fire departments responded to 210 house fires within 2010-2014 caused by Christmas trees along with candles being proven to start 38% of house fires in all.

A few ways to take action this season can be to make sure all lights are turned off and unplugged from the wall sockets before everyone goes to bed at night. Also you want to make sure to blow out all candles before bed and anytime no one is at the house.
