This time of the year presents an elevated risk of home fires according to the National Fire Protection Association, and they say there are things you can do to help ensure a safe season.
Susan McKelvey with the NFPA says the holiday and winter seasons come with an increased risk of home fires, partially due to factors such as home furnaces, and more people cooking holiday meals.
There are many different things you can do to help make sure you and your family are safe this season.
McKelvey appeared as a guest on the Newstalk WTIM Morning Show.
