This is a film of a National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) test showing just how flammable a dry Christmas tree can become. Last year, in my community, we had a tree fire that killed an 18-year-old woman and sent two young children to the Shriner’s burn unit in Sacramento.
Please, if you have a Christmas tree this holiday, keep it watered and dispose of it as soon as possible. Learn more>>
(I’ve seen this film so many times now that I won’t have a real tree in my house.)
