Dangerous holiday habits are common in many U.S. homes

The holiday months can carry an increased risk of house fires and burns, due to more time indoors, more cooking, open flames and decorations.

An independent survey commissioned by Shriners Hospitals for Children® polled U.S. adults on their fire safety practices and found habits that could lead to serious injuries or even death. For a listing of these bad holiday habits, see the December 14 edition of the Mount Vernon Optic-Herald.
