This action knocked the fire down, limiting it to the room of origin and preventing further spread.
Crews conducted primary and secondary searches of the building. All occupants had evacuated the home safely, and there were no injuries reported.
“Our Fire Investigator determined the cause was an LED Christmas tree that the resident saw caught fire and grew to involve the walls of the structure,” said HCFR.
