"London Fire Brigade has released a video which shows a house fire, most likely sparked by faulty Christmas tree lights.
The shocking video shows the fire enveloping a living room in just 40 seconds."

Gotta keep those real trees watered or they will act like a Californian forest fire under your bedroom :(

This video (whilst well worth revisiting) isn't actually new – longer version including a comparison with a watered tree here:

We often think that when we have completed our study of one we know all about two, because 'two' is 'one and one.' We forget that we still have to make a study of 'and.'
