As we enter the holiday season it’s time we recognize the fire hazards in our homes so we can avoid injuring the ones we love and damaging our property.   Here are my Top 3 home Fire Hazards:


  1. Candles 
  2. Fireplaces
  3. Extension cords and Holiday Lights 

    Here are some tips to avoid a holiday house fire:

  1. Don’t leave candles where children or pets can knock them over
  2. Properly dispose of ashes in metal container away from your property
  3. Toss warn cords/lights, don’t over load, and turn off lights before you go to sleep 

    These are just a few fire hazards in our home.  Having working smoke detectors is also a must!


Now go out and enjoy your holidays with your friends, family, and pets!

Happy Holidays!
