Fire Safety in the Big Apple During the Holidays
Holiday Home Fire Dangers & Restoration
The holiday season may have many homes and businesses in Manhattan, New York, decked out with holiday lights, candles, and the Christmas tree to bring out the holiday spirit, but this time of year is one where all should exercise additional caution. Many of the beautiful holiday decorations in homes and businesses in Manhattan can become a fire hazard.
The typical NYC home, apartment, and storefront often faces limited space. These tight quarters can easily be cause for a fire when holiday decorations are placed near flammable materials and objects.
According to a report from the National Fire Protection Association, the U.S. fire departments responded to an average 170 home fires per year that started with Christmas trees.
