This is the time of year for increased fires, often resulting in serious injuries and death.
The most dangerous time of the year for fires is now during the months of December, January and February.
There have already been several fire related deaths in the ArkLaTex in recent weeks including one at an apartment complex in Cedar Grove. The most unfortunate part of those deaths is they were all preventable.
As we enter into the deadly fire season, keep this in mind:
Residential fires claim the lives of more than 4,000 people in the United States each year. Take care not to be one of them.
