ROCHESTER - By now you may have already picked out the perfect Christmas tree and gotten it all decorated and ready for Santa, but are you taking the proper steps to keep it safe from catching fire?
Rochester firefighters want the public to remember how quickly a dry Christmas tree can burn. A video produced by the National Fire Protection Association shows the difference between a tree that hasn't been properly watered and one that has.
Firefighters also suggest keeping it away from candles, fireplaces or heating vents. They say most Christmas tree fires are electrical.
Firefighters say Christmas tree fires are not common, but when they happen they're often serious.
