Holiday decorations are being blamed for a fire that nearly destroyed a house in Westchester County.

Officials say wires from decorations overheated a surge protector and ignited the Christmas tree in the New Rochelle home around 9 p.m. Thursday.

The fire spread to a Christmas tree, the walls and the furniture in the living room.

Everyone inside the two family-house made it out safely.
