Dangers of holiday décor

HOUSTON (December05, 2017)

A UTHealth emergency physician said people arrive at the hospital most frequently on Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and New Years with burns caused by Christmas trees and candles. Unfortunately, we’re so busy this time of year and we forget the house is full of flammables! So, Dr. Richard Bradley toured one home to point out the top décor dangers. As an emergency medicine doctor at Memorial Hermann Red Duke Trauma Institute, he said, “Christmas tree fires burn so much more rapidly, and so much more intensely that when a Christmas tree is part of the house fire, the house fire gets much hotter, intensifies much more quickly, and really reduces the time that you have to escape from a fire.”
