Dead Christmas Tree Fire Avoided in Chino?

The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) reminds residents to remove their trees after Christmas or when the tree is dry. Here are some tips from the NFPA for preventing Christmas tree fires:
Get rid of the tree after Christmas or when it is dry. Dried-out trees are a fire danger and should not be left in the home or garage or placed outside against the house.
