    If you have a real tree, make a fresh cut before bringing it in & water it daily. Here’s a video that shows a side by side of a dry tree vs a well watered fresh tree when a fire starts:

    If these fires started from your parents Xmas tree lights, then no worries IF you are using this millennials LED lights.

    How come this room can incinerate in 20 seconds and I can’t get my charcoal briquets to light after a half hour of trying?

  • Scary – if this doesn’t make people extra cautious I don’t know what will, it’s good to get videos like this out there so that people can see it for themselves.
