Christmas Fire Safety

By: Bontia Tucker

I was going to write this blog about the hazards of live Christmas trees, but according to Office of the Fire Commissioner, statistics continue to show that during the winter holiday season, fire-related deaths in Alberta homes double compared to the rest of the year but rarely are they from Christmas tree fires.  These are the top home fire causes during the winter holidays.
