Don't Invite a Fire to Your House this Winter!

Did you know? Nearly a third of total-loss house fires happen in December, January & February? I had no idea. Thank you Realtor.com for the reminder! These things to watch out for seem obvious but worth the cursory glance. Read the list of dangerous things that can spark a house fire. I'm going home to make sure my outlet adaptors are not warm to the touch or overloaded. And if you have a live tree, make sure it's watered!
