AMERICUS, GA (WALB) - Crews in Americus want to make sure your home doesn't go up in flames because of a dried-out Christmas tree this holiday season.
Firefighters at Fire Station 1 on South Lee Street will spray your tree for free any time until December 23, 2017.
Chief Roger Bivins said in the 25 years he has worked as a firefighter in Americus, he has never seen a Christmas tree fire.
However, Chief Bivins said AFD continues offering this service each year because it makes people feel safer.
"We use a formula that we've got off the internet," said Chief Bivins. "Boric acid, borax and water, and the internet says it's pretty safe to prevent fires."
