Tree Fire Statistics
Fire departments across the country responded to 210 Christmas tree fires between 2010-2014. The number of tree fires dropped dramatically from 850 in 1980 to 170 in 2014. But these fires still cause many injuries, deaths, and millions of dollars in direct property damage each year.
While we can know that Christmas tree fires aren’t as common as home fires, statistics indicate that tree fires are more deadly. According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), 1 in 34 Christmas tree related fires resulted in at least one death while 1 in 142 regular home fires resulted in a death.
Decorative lights, wiring, plugs, candles, and heating equipment play a role in most Christmas tree fires. Lighting or heat sources too close to the tree caused most tree fires, as analyzed by the NFPA.
