More fires in Wausau this holiday season


Wausau fire officials say there have been more fires than usual this holiday season. They track each blaze during the "Keep the Wreath Green" campaign every December.

Five red bulbs light up the wreath in Wausau this year.

Fire officials say it's important to check several key areas of your home during the winter months to prevent fires. They include the chimney, stove and areas around the Christmas tree, which officials say can catch fire very easily.

The campaign continues through the first of the year.
