Corpus Christi Fire Dept. Demonstrates Christmas Tree Fire

Posted: Updated:
CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -
During the holiday season, fire safety is a must. Christmas trees can catch fire when they are dry and not hydrated.

Captain James Brown with the Corpus Christi Fire Department said ways to avoid your Christmas tree from catching fire are to use LED Christmas lights instead of the older cheaper Christmas lights because LED lights don't produce heat.

He said also to make sure when you purchase a Christmas tree that it is not dry and the leaves are brown and falling off.

Reporter Sarah Acosta with 3 News First Edition had Capt. Brown light a Christmas tree on fire to see if a hydrated Christmas tree would burn or not.
