11/2/2021 (Permalink)

Main causes of fires in the winter can be caused by Heating, holiday decorations, winter storms and candles all of these contribute to an increased risk of fire during the winter months. NFPA and the U.S. Fire Administration are teaming up to help reduce your risk to winter fires and other hazards, including carbon monoxide and electrical fires. 

Heating - Is the second leading cause of home fires. and the third leading cause of home fire deaths. Always keep an eye on your fireplaces and make sure nothing is around your space heaters that could get to hot and catch fire.

Holiday Decorations - The holiday decorations can cause electrical fires in your home. 

Winter Storms - Winter storms can cause down trees and powerlines on top of your home. the down power lines can cause electrical fire as well. 

Candles - Never leave your home with a lit candle unattended. December is the peak time of the year for home catching fire from candles. 

Always be aware of the fire hazards in your home and never leave your home with holiday lights on, fire places, space heaters or candles.
