Christmas Tree Fire Safety Tips for Mountain Iron Families?

Colorful electric lights sit on a wooden table. We restore fire damage in St. Louis County homes.

Our teams in Aitkin, Carlton, and West St. Louis Counties wish everyone in Mountain Iron a safe and fire-damage-free winter holiday season. Here are some Christmas tree safety tips from the National Fire Protection Association


  • Choose a tree with fresh, green needles that do not fall off when touched 


  • Before placing the tree in the stand, cut 2 inches from the base of the trunk 
  • Make sure the tree is at least three feet away from any heat source, like fireplaces, radiators, candles, heat vents, or lights 
  • Make sure the tree is not blocking an exit 
  • Add water to the tree stand. Be sure to add water daily. 


  • Use lights that are listed by a qualified testing laboratory, and some lights are only for indoor or outdoor use. 
  • Replace any string of lights with worn or broken cords or loose bulb connections. Read the manufacturer’s instructions for the number of light strands to connect. 
  • Never use lit candles to decorate the tree 
  • Always turn off Christmas tree lights before leaving home or going to bed
