Festive decorations, family gatherings and sipping hot chocolate by a crackling fire all make the holidays bright, but it's essential to practice fireplace safety precautions.
The holiday season is the most dangerous time of year for house fires.

These five fireplace safety tips from our REALTORS® can help prevent fires, keep your home and family safe and give you peace of mind so you can relax and be of good cheer during the holidays.
These tips are also appropriate for wood-burning stoves, grills, and outdoor fire pits. From all of us at Ayre/Rhinehart REALTORS®, have a wonderful holiday season! If you're considering buying a house in Midland in 2019, contact us to get your home search started.
