Light up tree safely

The "No Burns!" project of the United Homeowners Association is selling a fire alarm designed as a Christmas tree ornament.

The battery-operated plastic ball is painted metallic red, silver or gold to blend in with other holiday ornaments. It contains a heat-sensitive alarm.

The alarm ornaments sells for between $9.95 and $14.95, depending on the number purchased and can be ordered by calling 1-800-NO-BURNS or online at

The association recommends hanging the alarm where Christmas light strands are plugged together as these connections are likely flash points.

The association's No Burns! Web site offers other tips for keeping your home safe through the holidays.
