How Fast Your Christmas Tree Can Catch Fire If You Don't Water It

 

Here's How Fast Your Christmas Tree Can Catch Fire If You Don't Water It


  The Consumer Product Safety Commission posted a video that shows how fast your Christmas tree can turn into a FIREBALL if you forget to water it.

  

It shows two trees side-by-side.  One's been watered every day, and the other hasn't.  The one that HAS been watered starts smoldering, and there's a lot of smoke.  But you'd have a decent chance of stopping it before your house went up.

  

Then they light the one that hasn't been watered . . . and it's a raging inferno in about SIX SECONDS.  You'd basically have NO chance of stopping it.

  

So if you got a real tree this year, make sure there's always water in the base.  They can suck up as much as a gallon a day.
