Residents using real Christmas trees are advised to take precautions to avoid a fire this Holiday Season.
It may not be a surprise to hear that real trees are a bigger fire hazard than artificial ones, but Kenton Firefighter Kyle Brammell said there are things you can reduce the risk, "The easiest way is to water it to keep it alive and keep it fresh. If you go on-line, you can look up different times when they burn trees, and they take one that was watered and one that wasn't, and for me the it's unbelievable how it changes,, so definitely keep the tree watered and don't put a lot of lights on the tree or around the tree and overload them with extension cords. Those things do hand in hand when it comes to that."
