Rochester firefighters release video addressing Christmas tree fire safety tips


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 say Christmas tree fires are not common, but when they happen they're often serious.

Here are some more tips from the National Fire Protection Association.
