Christmas Tree Fire Video
Hi, I'm Tim Carter from AsktheBuilder.com. It is January 1st, 2011. We just took our live Christmas tree down. The tree is really dry. I wanted to do a fire safety experiment because you always hear about how these catch on fire, very quickly in a house. Lets see if that happens with this one.
I can tell you this tree is very dry and it hasn't been watered in days. Lets see what happens, if anything. Just using kitchen matches.
Look how quickly this tree burns! You really have to be careful with a live tree in your house. They can be dangerous. My little experiment shows that a tree can be a danger when a live Christmas tree runs out of water. Even though the tree still looks green, it quickly caught fire.
Be careful in your home during the holiday season.
