Live burn shows just how quickly Christmas tree fires can turn devastating and deadly.

The devastating damage Christmas tree fires can inflict on people and property – and just how quickly it can happen – were vividly demonstrated during a live burn event on Monday at the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission’s (CPSC) research lab in Rockville, MD. The footage (above) underscores just how fast a dried out Christmas tree burns, with flashover occurring in about 30 seconds, while a well-watered tree burns at a far slower rate.
National news outlets covered the event, including The Today Show, CNN, FOX News, NBC, Univision and ABC News. Watch the ABC News featuring NFPA President Jim Pauley, who addressed the potential risks posed by Christmas tree and candle fires, while reminding everyone about the life-saving value of working smoke alarms in the home and a having a home fire escape plan.
Of course, the goal of the burn event isn’t to scare people away from enjoying the holidays. It’s to remind everyone about the importance of taking simple safety precautions that can ensure a festive and fire-safe season.
