Stay Safe From Fire This Holiday Season

The Pennsylvania Fire Commissioner is offering tips to help avoid fires during the holiday season. Acting State Fire Commissioner Bruce Trego says check holiday lights for damage and throw away strands which are frayed or worn. To prevent holiday season fires, Trego also says to avoid overloading electrical outlets and be careful with lit candles. Since cooking fires are also common during the holiday season, Trego also encourages PA residents not to leave their cooking unattended.
