The importance of fire safety in regards to Christmas trees cannot be over emphasized. This video demonstrates how intensely a Christmas tree can burn, and how rapidly the fire can and will spread throughout a room/house. For those of you with "real" Christmas trees, please be sure you keep the tree watered and sources of ignition away from the tree (space heaters, candles, fire places, etc.).

This video demonstrates the ability of a residential sprinkler to control a fire in the early stages, keeping it from spreading throughout a structure.

As the fire races up the curtains, the temperature at the ceiling rises, causing the sprinkler head to activate. In seconds, the fire is extinguished.
