It is filled with pitch and resin, and once lighted, is very hard to ' extinguish. An averaae tree takes less than two minutes to burn up, starting a roaring blaze before the Fire Dept. can in most cases arrive. HERE ARE SOME PRECAUTIONARY MEASURES: • Choose a smaller ^ree rather than a big one. It's much less of a fire hazard. • Pla^e tree in coolest part of the house. If necessary, shut off radiators nearest the tree. O Do not, under any circumstances, use cotton or paper for decoration on the tree or around tree. * • Dp not place electric trains around the tree. • Use only electric lights, and see that all the wires are in good condition and not frayed. • Do not plug or unplug the lights beneath the tree. • Do not leave tree lights burning when no one is in the house. If needles near lights change to brown, change location of lights. • When needles start falling, lake tree down and discard it. • AND — when opening Christinas presents, remove all gift wrappings and packing materials from livingroom and dispose of them. Each year, F-I-R-E turns Chrujstmas, the mpst joyful time of the year, into tragedy in hundreds of American homes. Christmas fires occur because extra hazards - hiahly inflammable Christmas trees qnd decorations - are brought into homes, schools and public buildings. Other hazards t irfelude the use of lighted candles, defective electric lights, cjnd "inflammable costumes used in Christmas pageants. This word of enution, along with a wish for a Very Merry Christmas, is presented here by the Algona Fire Department, in the hope th> ouc services will NOT be needed at your home during the present Christmas season) To Report A Fire — PHONE 85 Ira Kohl, Chiff Mrs Undo Clapsaddle, Mayor
