The city of Albuquerque is reminding residents of the flammability of Christmas trees.

It's the annual "burning of the Christmas tree”. They warn residents to be cautious lighting and maintaining their trees, as well as fires in fireplaces or outdoors.

The annual burning shows residents just how fast a tree fire can spread and burn an entire room or house.

Last December in Albuquerque, there were 140 fires totaling $500,000 in damage.
