Fire officials burn Christmas tree to show dangers
SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- Christmas trees can be a beautiful holiday decoration, but they can also be very dangerous. It only takes seconds for one to catch fire and go up in flames.
Fire officials and burn unit staff at Saint Francis Memorial Hospital teamed up Tuesday morning and set a dry Christmas tree on fire.
San Francisco Fire Chief Joanne Hayes-White talked about the importance of fire safety during the holidays. One tip she offered: water the trees daily so they won't dry out.
