Simulation Warns How Dangerous A Christmas Tree Fire Can Be

Engineers at Worcester Polytechnic Institute decided to demonstrate just how dangerous a dry Christmas tree and an open flame can be to a homeowner. Watch as a simple flame takes up the entire tree in flames and fills the room with fire in just a few seconds. This year, please be cautious and warn others of this scary situation. And be sure to keep your tree watered for the health of the tree and your own safety!

A reminder to keep that tree watered! Engineers at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) demonstrate just how fast a dry Christmas tree can go up in flames.
