US Agency Issues Warning Over Fire Risk of Not Watering Christmas Trees

The US Consumer Product Safety Commission has warned of the dangers of not watering your Christmas tree during the holidays.

On December 14, the agency released a video showing how quickly a dry Christmas tree burns compared to a watered tree.

“Many people have real Christmas trees in their homes for the first time ever this holiday season,” the agency wrote on social media. “Make sure your keep your tree well watered. A dry Christmas tree burns faster than newspaper.” Credit: @USCPSC via Storyful
