Holiday hazards

Posted: Updated:

WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - The Wilmington Fire Department is warning people that holiday traditions could be holiday hazards.

1)      Be mindful of your Christmas tree, a dry tree can catch on fire at any moment. Keep it moist and dispose of it properly.

2)      If your house is full of Christmas candles, be sure to extinguish them if you will be leaving your house.

3)      Christmas lights are not built to have an electrical current running through them for an extended period of time, so turn out off your Christmas lights before you go to bed.
