Christmas Tree Fire in Pineville?
Holiday Fire Safety Tips
I’ll never forget the time my big Airedale Terrier, Scooter, went to sleep under the Christmas tree. I came into the room with another armload of decorations, and he saw me and tried to stand up really fast and knocked the tree over. All of the decorations went flying through the room with a crash! The poor dog was so horrified that I didn’t have the heart to scold him. I just petted him and told him it was okay; everyone has a bad day now and then!
