During these holiday seasons, take extra care when using candles, portable heaters, wood burning stoves and fireplaces, especially around hanging decorations or real Christmas trees. Keep the trees watered and away from heat sources. Be very careful on the frozen ponds and lakes as ice may be thin. Never walk on river ice as it does not freeze to uniform thickness. Have a safe and happy holiday season!
