Employees are able to prevent a Destructive Fire

According to the Boone Fire Department, quick-acting employees at Modern Ford saved their building from potential fire damage after a Christmas tree caught fire.

The Boone Fire Department was called to the Modern Ford in Boone. Employees saw the tree begin to catch fire and moved it outside which BFD said saved the building. Boone Fire posted on Facebook that Christmas trees should be removed after the holiday season or when the tree has dried out. "Dried-out trees are a fire danger and should not be left in the home, business, garage, or placed outside against the home," the department posted. "Be sure to bring outdoor electrical lights inside after the holidays to prevent hazards and make them last longer."
