Incredible Speed of a Live Christmas Tree Fire – PSA Video. PSA showing the incredible speed of a live Christmas tree fire. Fire spreads up the tree and gushes across the ceiling, setting the rest of the room ablaze. Smoke engulfs the frame from the top down until all is black. It’s a real eye-opener as to the dangers of a short in a string of Christmas lights.

Burn the experiment in the little fire source of cigarette butt. A very interesting video on how quick fire can progress through a home, and the damage that occurs.

Powerful images from a Public TV special on fire safety. The room goes from a smouldering cigarette to exploding in 2 minutes!
