  • Two of every five (40%) home Christmas tree fires started in the living room, family room, or den.  Three-quarters of the fatalities and two-thirds of the associated injuries resulted from fires started in this area.
  • The top three days for home candle fires are Christmas, New Year’s Day and New Year's Eve.
