Even Santa Can Have A House Fire

OK, maybe not THE Santa.

But one of his local helpers, with his own homemade red Santa suit, which is now in ruins.

It goes without saying that house fires put a big damper on holiday spirit, but yet it’s the time of the year that they’re most likely to happen. In fact, during the first 10 days of December, we responded to an incredible 42 house fires around the state. Just here in Portland, we’re responding to about two fires a day.

So, please stay safe this holiday season. Know what to do to prevent house fires. And make sure Santa still has a home to visit.
